Foundations of Practice

The Foundations of Practice is a professional development program for first-year students to help them identify their professional goals and build critical professional skills sought by legal employers and clients.  The program connects students with important resources to supplement their legal education, such as Inns of Court programs, Writing Center support, Career Center assistance, health and wellness programming and advice from practicing lawyers.  Students who successfully complete the program requirements by the end of the first year of law school are awarded the Dean’s Recognition for Professional Development.
