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.

Corporate Finance will study the basic financing techniques and related legal instruments by which business corporations raise capital. Topics covered will include venture capital, bank finance, IPO's, public and private sale of long term debt, securitization and derivatives. More theoretical topics will be covered by the course professor and more practical topics by specialist practitioners from Dorsey & Whitney who will review and discuss model agreements and term sheets. Certain areas which are increasingly regulated under the Dodd Frank legislation of 2010 will receive particular focus. They include securitization, derivatives and credit rating agencies. Students will be asked to analyze final and proposed rules under Dodd Frank. Students will be given the opportunity to work with "real" documents, drafting from models and commenting on the drafts of others. For example, a student might prepare a section of an agreement for a lender and another student might comment from the point of view of a borrower. There will be a final exam counting for half the course grade with the balance of the grade dependent on written analysis and drafting as well as oral class participation.

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.

Enrollment in the externship is by application only. To be eligible for a credit-earning externship, a student must first complete a minimum of 28 credits of study.
