Professionalism in U.S. Public Interest and Private Sector Practice is a 1-unit course designed for LL.M. students to introduce them to lawyers practicing in the U.S. legal system. The course is open to all LL.M. students and will explore professional norms of public interest and private sector law practice in the U.S., primarily through a range of guest speakers sharing their insights and expertise.
