Gain Skills through Real-World Experience
The commitment to ensuring that our graduates are practice-ready directs the CUA Law experience. Recognizing that classwork and textbooks alone do not quite complete the transformation of student to lawyer, all academic programs include transition-to-practice requirements. Many also require participation in clinics, externships, trial or moot court teams, or other hands-on experience.
Through "live client" and simulated lawyering experiences, students learn practical trial techniques, research and writing skills, and other important lawyering skills, such as counseling, interviewing, negotiating, and mediating.
Externships and Outreach
CUA Law’s externship program is among the most extensive in the nation. Students earn class credit and priceless real-world experience in a vast array of legal practice settings that include government, private firms, the judiciary, think tanks, agencies and many other places.
