Judicial Practicum - LAWB 6368


Credits Hours: 3

The Judicial Practicum is an experiential-learning course in which students in the part-time division are placed in distance field placements with members of the judiciary and also attend an accompanying seminar class at the law school. The students work under the supervision of both a faculty supervisor at the law school and a field supervisor at the placement site. Working remotely, students in the course telecommute to perform research and other related writing assignments for the judges with whom they are placed. As their schedules permit, students will be encouraged and permitted to attend courtroom proceedings conducted by the judges for whom they are working. Students receive three credit hours upon satisfactory completion of the course requirements. This course affords part-time students an opportunity that they would not otherwise get to do authentic legal work. In addition, the students (and Bowen) will be providing a valuable service to Arkansas by providing research support in areas of the state where no such support would otherwise be available.
