Summer Law Practicum

The Summer Law Practicum hosted by Student Legal Services will provide students an inside look in to working in the legal field. The Practicum is ideal for students who are interested in going to Law school, criminal justice and political science majors, and anyone else with a general interest in policing and the legal field looking to add to their resume.

The Practicum will allow students to "socially distance" via Webex with community partners working in the legal field such as Judges, Detectives, Prosecutors, Public Defenders, and private attorneys. Students will meet remotely twice per week for 4 weeks and will submit a one page reflection paper at the end of each week. Students completing these requirements will receive a certificate evidencing their completion of the Summer Law Practicum.

Students who are interested in participating should email Stephanie Allen at stephanie.allen@wright.edu to register. The deadline to register is June 10, 2020. The first "class" for the practicum will be June 16, 2020.

For further questions, please contact Stephanie Allen at stephanie.allen@wright.edu.
