Each clinical semester begins with intensive classes taught on-campus which may include weekend days.
In recent years, the practice of law has become increasingly dominated by global concerns. Students enrolled in the International Practice Clinic explore key issues involving both public and private concerns, such as the impact of treaties, peacekeeping and human rights, intellectual property, and practical applications of international business regulations. Some clinic interns may be placed with international organizations devoted to humanitarian efforts.Â Others might serve as interns in private law firms that specialize in international business law or students may choose to work in the area of immigration.
