Immersion Courses

The Law School offers several other courses that allow students to do important learning outside of the South Bend campus. Please note that these immersion courses do not count toward the 6-credit experiential requirement.

Law students 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 (CSC 33997).

Law students may also participate in two international immersion opportunities as well through university partners. The Business on the Frontlines (MGT76030) course offered through the Mendoza College of Business allows teams of students to study about and then travel to countries struggling to rebuild their economies after a war or violent conflict. The Common Good Initiative (CGI) offered through the Center for Social Concerns is a multi-disciplinary immersion course in social justice that enables graduate and professional students from across the university to integrate social justice considerations into their personal and disciplinary interests. Students travel over semester breaks to sites that have included Haiti, Cuba, Guatemala, El Salvador, New Orleans, El Paso-Ciudad Juarez, and Detroit.
