  The School of Law - Newark 2004-2006 The Law Program Summer Session  

Summer Session

The School of Law-Newark offers an eight-week session each summer. Course offerings are primarily advanced electives; the only required first-year course is Legal Research, Writing, and Analysis II for part-time students. Courses are taught by full-time Rutgers-Newark law faculty and adjunct faculty. Summer Session is open to all law students matriculated at an accredited law school, although Rutgers-Newark law students are given enrollment priority in limited enrollment courses (e.g., Appellate Advocacy and Trial Presentation).

In addition to electives and seminars, Rutgers-Newark students also can enroll in the following: Attorney General Externship, Independent Research, Judicial Externship, National Labor Relations Board Externship, Intellectual Property Externship, and Research Assistant. In most cases, the law school permits students to register for no more than 5 credits during the Summer Session. For further information and registration materials, contact Diane Melito at 973/353-1167.
