LSU Law Apprenticeship Week is an innovative and unique new program of practical legal education. From January 6-10, 2014, master lawyers and judges will teach LSU Law upperclass students in small enrollment, hands-on mini-courses. Each mini-course will aim to provide students with focused, task-oriented training not generally available in law school courses and usually available only through actual practice experience.
Participating students will receive one hour of credit, at no additional charge, for successfully completing a mini-course. The credit will be awarded in the 2014 spring semester as credit or no credit. Students will be expected to devote the week of the program to thoughtful preparation for class and diligent completion of the individual and group projects assigned. To enhance the communal experience and provide networking opportunities for students, each day will include an all student/all faculty lunch and mid-morning coffee break.
Enrollment in the initial program of Apprenticeship Week classes will be limited, with priority given to third-year students for three-fourths of available places in each class. For some classes, priority in enrollment will be given to students with demonstrated interest or experience in the subject matter.
