Program Description

LSU Law Apprenticeship Week will be held January 5-9, 2015. During this week, 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 2015 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.

Apprenticeship Week is the Quality Enhancement Plan for SACSCOS Accreditation.
