Add This

Registration is now open for the summer session at Rutgers School of Law-Newark. Any law students who have completed the first-year program or its equivalent at an ABA-accredited law school can register.

Students have the opportunity to take a variety of upper-level courses taught by recognized experts in the field at an affordable price. Students can, for example, provide legal services geared to the needs of local, lower-income people, non-profits and small businesses in the Community and Transactional Lawyering Clinic; learn about the most rapidly growing area in tax law in State and Local Taxation; or become familiar with the procedural, strategic and substantive legal issues that transcend our nation’s borders in Transnational Litigation and Dispute Resolution. Interested in the entertainment business? Take Entertainment Law and Business to study the laws, rules and regulations specific to the fields of music, motion pictures, print publications, television and live theater.

Classes are held in the evening so that students can experience clerkship, internship and other summer employment opportunities in the New York metropolitan area while still earing credit toward graduation. The eight-week term (May 19 to July 14) should satisfy any residency requirements that a visiting student’s home law school imposes.

A student from a school other than Rutgers School of Law–Newark must submit a letter from that law school certifying that he or she is in good standing. For full details about the summer session and to register go to http://law.newark.rutgers.edu/summer-2014-general-registration-instructions.
