Prior to graduation, students must take at least one course in each of the following areas:
Social Justice and Public Interest
Attorneys concentrating on social justice and public interest law use a variety of strategies to work for social change. Social justice and public interest law includes race and the law, drug law and policy, criminal sentencing and prison reform, wrongful convictions, poverty law, mental health law, consumer law, bioethics, and domestic violence.
The Center for Excellence in Advocacy offers a Certificate of Concentration in Social Justice Advocacy.
While not all attorneys interested in these issues secure jobs dedicated solely to a legal practice in social justice, Stetson’s numerous courses and certificate program provide students with opportunities to serve others and instill a commitment to social justice, public interest, and public service.
