Experiential learning

  • Clinical opportunities

    The J.D. curriculum invites critical assessment of the role of law in society as well as the development of skills relevant to the practice of law. In addition to lectures and seminars, students are given an opportunity to develop, under supervision, some of the research, writing, and forensic skills which will prove essential in the practise of law.

Clerkships and Clerkships for academic credit

Clerking gives you an opportunity to see the “inside” of the judicial decision-making process, to hone your research and writing skills and to gain a “judge’s eye view” of good advocacy.

  • Mooting

    Through participation in Moot competitions, our law students develop real world advocacy skills and challenge themselves to strive for excellence in adversarial settings. Mooting is an excellent forum for students to develop proficiency in oral arguments, written facta, public speaking, and extemporaneous debate, while making connections with scholars, judges, and legal professionals from schools and cities throughout the country.
