Social Justice Advocacy Program – Attention 1Ls, 2Ls & Part Time Students

If you came to law school to become a human rights or civil rights advocate on a local, national or international level; OR if you want to use your law degree to ensure respect for humanity;  to protect the economic and social development of communities; and/or to prevent large institutions from abusing their power, you should apply to the Social Justice Advocacy (SJA) concentration program.

We will be hosting an informational/question and answer session on the SJA program on Monday, Feb. 13th at 12 noon in CLASSROOM D.  Please RSVP to if you plan on attending.   A light lunch will be provided.

Students in the SJA program receive guidance from faculty mentors, participate in experiential learning opportunities that help them develop an area of expertise, do advanced research and writing on social justice issues and pursue a focused curriculum that will aid them in shaping their criminal and/or civil justice careers.   To learn more about the program or to apply to the program, click on the law school’s homepage, then click on the Centers for Excellence/Advocacy, and under the heading Academic Programs click on the Certification in Social Justice Advocacy.    The deadline for students to apply to begin the Social Justice Concentration Program in the Fall is March 27th at 5 p.m.  But don’t wait until then …..we accept applications on a rolling basis so apply whenever you are ready!!
