LSU Law’s annual Apprenticeship Week kicks off on Monday, Jan. 6, bringing volunteer master lawyers and judges to the Law Center to teach students a wide variety of mini-courses aimed at providing focused, task-oriented training that’s usually only available through actual practice experience.
The one-hour credit program is free for participating LSU Law students, who will devote the week to thoughtful preparation for class and diligent completion of the individual and group projects assigned. To enhance the communal experience and provide networking opportunities for students, each day includes a mid-morning coffee break and lunch for all students and faculty members.
Students and faculty are asked to report to the McKernan Auditorium at 8:30 a.m. on Monday, Jan. 6, for orientation, at which students will meet the faculty and receive instructions on the week’s activities. A light breakfast will be served. For more information, contact Pam Hancock at firstname.lastname@example.org.
