Our students are exposed to every aspect of litigation, assist in trial preparation, mediations, arbitrations and hearings. Our students regularly appear before the Superior Court of Justice and argue motions.

We begin the student experience with a series of seminars focused on the practical aspects of procedural and substantive law. These seminars are fundamental to our tradition of cooperation, dialogue, and mentorship and are in addition to our regular continuing legal education series and third party seminars.
