Prospective law students are invited to attend an open house at the Quinnipiac University School of Law Center, 370 Bassett Road, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 16.
Those who attend will tour the center and learn about the law school’s academic program and how the faculty works closely with students to develop a course of study that matches their goals. The law school has concentrations in several areas, including civil advocacy and dispute resolution, criminal law and advocacy, family law, health law, intellectual property, international law and policy, tax law and workplace law.
“The open house is a terrific opportunity for individuals who think they might want to apply to law school to learn more about what Quinnipiac Law has to offer,” said Brad Saxton, interim dean of the School of Law. “Our guests will attend sessions that will give them a very good sense of our program and the range of experiences that our students enjoy in their time here. Those joining us for the open house will also have opportunities to meet and speak with a significant number of students, administrative staff and law faculty members. The day gives prospective law students a very good sense of the strong and welcoming community here, which is one of our most treasured assets.”
In addition, the law school offers several joint degrees, including the JD/MBA and JD/MBA in health care management with Quinnipiac’s School of Business, JD/MELP, master of environmental law and policy in partnership with Vermont Law School, and the JD/MSW, master of social work, with Quinnipiac’s School of Health Sciences. Students can also choose from a growing slate of international opportunities, including a summer legal study abroad program in Ireland.
The law school’s clinical and externship programs immerse students in real-life work and environments that build highly skilled lawyers. Among the 17 externship areas are criminal justice, health law, intellectual property, legislative and public interest. The law school also offers 17 clinical practice areas, including family law and veterans’ advocacy.
Quinnipiac’s externship program has more than 300 placement sites and emphasizes collaboration among students, faculty supervisors, lawyers, judges and mediators.
