Community Engaged Learning
The classroom component of the practicum will focus on the application of theory to practice. Students will engage with the substantive law of the rights violations being investigated, discuss the strategies available to advocates seeking change, confront legal and ethical issues as they arise in their work, receive training on practical legal skills as needed, and reflect upon their experiences. Students will be graded on a combination of participation and the completion of assignments for the clinical component. This course may be repeated for credit.
