Focused course work in the criminal-law area helps prepare students to serve individuals and the common good as prosecutors, public defenders, or private defense attorneys.
All focused course work at UST Law consists of foundational Dynamic Courses that introduce the subject area, upper-level theory and practice Dynamic Courses that provide an academic background necessary for success, and experiential learning Dynamic Courses that provide students with the chance to apply their learning in simulations or outside the classroom.
The Supervised Research and Writing course (independent study), the Mentor Externship program, and the public service requirements can also be used to support focused course work.
