The Rutgers–Newark Law School summer session offers a variety of upper-level courses for law students who have completed the first-year program or its equivalent. Students can, for example, gain an in-depth understanding of New York civil practice law; become familiar with the procedural issues confronting U.S. lawyers who practice international law; or learn how to help the families of children with disabilities successfully navigate New Jersey’s public education system. Students who did not get everything they should have out of their Contracts class might consider taking Advanced Contracts, while those looking to practice in the entertainment industry might want to study Entertainment Law & Business.
Classes are held in the evening so students can experience clerkship, internship, and other summer employment opportunities in the New York metropolitan area while still earning credit toward graduation. The eight-week term should satisfy any residency requirements that a visiting student’s home law school imposes.
All classes run from Monday, May 11th through Tuesday, July 7th, except Advanced Legislative Research, which is conducted in three full (or almost full) day sessions on May 11th, 15th and 18th.
A student from a school other than Rutgers School of Law–Newark must submit a letter from that law school certifying that he or she is in good standing. For full details about the summer session and to register go to http://law.newark.rutgers.edu/students/summer-2009-registration
