The Law School offers several other courses that allow students to do important learning outside of the South Bend campus.
The GALILEE (LAW 75700) course gives law students an opportunity to earn one co-curricular credit while learning about public interest and public service law through three-day, student-designed urban immersion programs around the nation over winter break. Over 100 students participate each year. First-year students in particular find the program useful for meeting with practicing lawyers in the field and reflecting on the direction of their legal careers.
The Law School offers two international immersion opportunities as well. Through the Law & Human Development in Practice (LAW 73430) course, students participate in summer research internships on global justice issues around the world and then develop a deeper understanding of the theoretical, historical, and practical features of human development work through a seminar that meets both before and after their summer immersions. Law students may also participate in the Business on the Frontlines (MGT 76030) course offered through the Mendoza College of Business, through which teams of students study about and then travel to countries struggling to rebuild their economies after a war or violent conflict.
Law students also have an opportunity to develop a unique perspective on the criminal justice system by participating in a weekly seminar with inmates at the Westville Correctional Center through a Center for Social Concerns sponsored course entitled Rethinking Crime and Justice: Explorations from the Inside Out (CSC 33997).
Each year several third-year students on the NDLS Moot Court Board write briefs and conduct oral arguments in appointed cases before the United States Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit.View All News
