Law school intersession offers intensive study opportunities

The School of Law will hold intersession courses Jan. 5-9, 2009, allowing upper-level students to take a one-unit short course in a subject that enriches their curriculum.

Top attorneys, professors and other legal professionals will teach these classes.

Intersession offerings include: “Chapter 11 Strategies for the Business Lawyer”; “Comparative Property and Tax Law: Select Topics, Chile and United States”; “Feminist Legal Perspectives”; “Housing Law”; “Introduction to Intellectual Property Law”; “Introduction to Law Firm Practice”; “Law and the Practice of International Diplomacy”; “Negotiation”; and “Transnational Migration and Citizenship Law.”

Graduate students from other disciplines are welcome to attend the courses. Registration continues through mid-November.

“Our second annual Intersession Program is an excellent opportunity for students from various areas of study to explore a narrow topic in depth with experts in the field,” said Tomea Mayer Mersmann, J.D., associate dean for strategic initiatives. “Leading practitioners have developed substantive and engaging course offerings.”
