This program in which first-year students may apply is different from anything at any other law school! The first-year students who are accepted begin the program during their second year of law school.
Becoming a lawyer takes more than sitting through three years of law school lectures. It involves more than learning how to cross-examine hostile witnesses, write persuasive briefs, and talk to clients. Reading about subjects such as legal ethics or law practice management is not the same as learning about them from experience.
Throughout the LADR program, you will learn legal doctrine, lawyering skills, and professional values, and work in Chicago-Kent's teaching law firm, supervised by clinical professors who are expert practitioners and mentors. You will learn the art of lawyering through two years of intensive skills and clinical training. Your experience will teach you how to become a competent, ethical, socially responsible lawyer.
To learn more about this program, please contact Prof. Gary Laser, Room 631, or pick up an application and curriculum memorandum in Room 600.
APPLICATIONS FOR THIS PROGRAM MUST BE TURNED IN BY JANUARY 31, 2000.
Please turn in applications in Room 600.
