The unique program includes 10 major law firms, over 20 community-based organizations and several dozen law students.
Upper Division Orientation
As students return to law school after the summer, there is lots to do to get back into the swing of the academic semester. Upper Division Orientation is designed to provide the important information that returning students need. This mandatory session covers specifics about the Pro Bono Experiential Learning Requirement (ELR), experiential learning opportunities including clinics and clinical externship opportunities and successful strategies for finding summer and post-graduate employment. In addition, students will receive information about the Multistate Professional Responsibility Exam (MPRE), the bar application process, and financial aid.
