Academic Preparation & Support
The Warren B. Rudman Center for Justice, Leadership & Public Policy offers a broad range of public interest courses taught by a diverse faculty with strong social justice and public policy backgrounds. The goal is to equip students to become a new generation of leaders committed to using their legal education for the common good.
The Rudman Center has designed curricular plans for students preparing for careers in government service, public interest law and social justice advocacy in the following areas:
- Criminal Law
- Indigent Legal Services
- Civil Rights & Civil Liberties
- Public Interest in Private Practice
- Intellectual Property in the Public Interest
- International Human Rights
These practice areas are designed to prepare students in fields of greatest relevance to the under-represented and most vulnerable in our communities.
