Through upper-level electives such as Intellectual Property, International Law and Public Health Law, you’ll build expertise in the areas you’re most passionate about. Along the way, you’ll be mentored and taught by exceptional faculty who publish in leading law journals and are hands-on pro bono practitioners.
