Preparing students to succeed as business lawyers and business leaders
Students have the opportunity to earn certificates in law and business and must complete a rigorous course of study that incorporates foundational courses in business law, business principles and ethical problem solving, writing skills, practical experience through clinics and externships and engagement with the business and legal community through mentoring and networking.
