The Intensive Criminal Law Practicum is designed to provide students with real-world practical exposure to the practice of criminal law. In addition to working on at least 1 major actual criminal file jointly (usually with the program coordinator's law firm). Students will also be placed in the office of a criminal lawyer for 32 hours a week (Monday to Thursday) for ten weeks where the students will become intimately involved in the practice of criminal law under the supervision of a practicing criminal lawyer. In some situations, students may also be placed under the supervision of a judge for part of the placement. While the focus of the practicum will be on criminal law and the related areas of law and practice mentioned above, students will likely be exposed to other areas of law intersecting with criminal law (for example, insurance or property law). Students in this practicum must simultaneously enroll in the Intensive Criminal Law Seminar.
