Collaborative Court Program

A three-year curricular option for students, the Collaborative Court Program incrementally merges doctrinal education with the procedural and substantive work of the courts. Students begin their legal education with a mandatory 1L Court Observation Program, continue to 2L integrative courses representing the infusion of practical courthouse experience into the classroom and culminate with a 3L Court Specialization Program.

The William Randolph Hearst Public Advocacy Center

The first of its kind in the nation, the Center houses a number of legal advocacy groups within the law school. These organizations work to provide legal services to the local community and provide opportunities for students to gain hands-on skills training while developing an understanding of the problems facing the local community.
