Law students who want to use their 2012 winter break to earn credits toward graduation should consider the 2012 Winter Session at Rutgers School of Law–Newark.
Intensive Deposition Advocacy and Health Law & Policy I are offered to students who have completed the first-year program or its equivalent at an ABA-accredited law school. Classes will take place during the first week of January. Registration is open until December 15th. Additionally, for the first time Rutgers–Newark is offering a two-credit Winter Session course on Non-Profit Corporations and Tax-Exempt Organizations in concert with a service trip to the Dominican Republic from January 1st to January 8th.
Intensive Deposition Advocacy, which is scheduled from 9 am to 5:30 pm from Tuesday, January 3rd, through Friday, January 6th, will use lectures and workshops to teach successful discovery deposition skills. Health Law & Policy I, which will run from 10 am to 3:30 pm from Tuesday, January 3rd, through Saturday, January 7th, will focus on the fundamental legal principles, laws, regulations, and issues as well as emerging issues in this critical area of law. Each of these affordably-priced, two-credit-classes will be taught by recognized experts in the topics.
In Non-Profit Corporations and Tax-Exempt Organizations, law students will team up with health care and engineering students, building a sturdy home in an impoverished rural community, while studying the NGO that runs this charitable enterprise and exploring the possibilities for expanding its scope or creating new organizations that might complement its work.
