Foundations of Justice II focuses on organizational leadership. Most law school graduates work with or for organizations – whether law firms, government agencies, non-profit organizations, or corporations. Given the mission of St. Thomas Law School, it is especially important that our students are equipped to thrive in the relationships that are central to organizational life. This segment of the course carries forward the themes from Foundations of Justice I, and introduces students to some of the key skills, concepts, and values necessary to understand and succeed in organizations. By exploring the moral dimension of organizational culture and roles, providing students with practical and aspirational insights from organizational leaders, and familiarizing students with key financial and business aspects of the modern organization, this segment provides a foundation on which later courses can build. The class will facilitate opportunities to discuss problem-solving and cross-cultural competency in the context of organizations.

Criminal Practice is a practical class for those students who are committed to pursuing the vocation of criminal law. While Criminal Law and Criminal Procedure cover essential statutes and precedents, Criminal Practice teaches students how to use that knowledge and ethically practice criminal law in the field. For example, in Criminal Law students may have learned what a suppression hearing is, and in Criminal Procedure they will have studied the law that can be relied upon to suppress evidence. Criminal Practice builds on that knowledge and covers the actual preparation and presentation of a suppression motion-how to write the motion (and response), how to prevent evidence at the hearing, and how to interact with clients and agents before, during, and after the hearing. Because the course is rooted in practice, much of the student work is done in the form of exercises, which track the work done throughout the criminal case. As much as possible, these exercises are crafted to reflect the challenges faced in real cases.

In this course students choose research topics from the LSEJ research topic list and work singly or in small groups to produce research papers that advance equal justice. Classroom sessions focus on the development of project topics, research skills needed for equal justice issues, policy analysis and problem solving, working collaboratively, the role of the public interest lawyer, and additional topics of interest to the participants. Class members are linked with the attorneys whose legal issues generated their projects. These attorneys serve as "field contacts" to help supervise the project. In addition, students spend approximately twenty hours on field work (either with their field contacts or other local public interest practitioners) to gain an understanding of public interest practice in general, the legal issues involved in their individual projects, and the real world implications of their topics. Students' completed works are presented before a CLE audience of lawyers at the end of the semester and are made available to practitioners, students, faculty and others on the LSEJ website.

The LLM Mentor Externship incorporates two of UST Law’s curricular innovations -- the Mentor Externship Program and the Foundations of Justice course -- to provide LLM students a unique inside view of the American system of justice. Each LLM student is matched with a “mentor” who is active in the legal profession. This relationship is supplemented and supported by the MEFJP course, in which students explore the practical aspects of crafting a professional identity as a lawyer, and reflect together on the fundamental theoretical and moral principles that shape the identity of lawyers across different legal and social cultures. The MEFJP is tailored to help LLM students address the particular challenges of bridging the difference between the legal and social culture of the United States, and the different legal and social cultures in which the LLM students received their primary legal degrees.

This course will offer students an opportunity to learn about the judicial process and the role of judges and judicial clerks while under the direct supervision of a state or federal judge or justice.

The 150 hours include time spent in the classroom seminar, on readings and journals and a presentation to the seminar, and on the actual project work assigned by the judge.
