This is a three-credit, graded course. It is taken concurrently with a field placement in a non-profit or governmental organization, or a private law firm doing pro bono work. In this course, we will explore what it means to be a lawyer and a member of the legal profession. We will think about the variety of roles that lawyers may have and the wide range of practice experiences available to persons with law degrees. The goal of the course is to broaden your understanding of what it means to be a lawyer and to enrich your understanding of the possibilities given your own career goals and values. This course will meet Monday evenings, from 6:00 p.m. to 9:20 p.m. from May 26, 2014 through July 21, 2014 in a room to be announced.
