Concentration Advisors: Professor Kate Bloch, Professor Rory Little, or Professor Aaron Rappaport
The Criminal Law Concentration is designed to help students prepare for criminal law practice by providing a broad and integrated curriculum of theory, doctrine, and practice. All students must take the building blocks of the curriculum, Criminal Law, and Evidence. Students are then given an opportunity to apply their knowledge in a clinic or the Legal Externship Program and Fieldwork that provides work in a criminal law clinical or field setting. Finally, students select from an array of electives and participate in the Criminal Law & Theory Concentration Seminar where they delve into cutting edge issues facing today’s criminal lawyer.
Please note that the required Criminal Law Concentration Seminar may be offered in only one semester per academic year, either in the Fall or Spring; students should plan accordingly.
