Professional SkillsStudents in the School of Law are presented with a broad spectrum of professional skills opportunities. These courses provide students the chance to apply legal theory to practice situations with actual clients or through simulated situations.
SLU LAW offers a variety of professional skills courses including both simulation courses (students perform lawyering tasks in simulated cases) and live-client programs (students provide legal services to actual clients under faculty supervision).
Most of the live-client programs are offered through the Legal Clinics and include the in-house and mediation clinics as well as externship opportunities. Simulation courses are offered in diverse areas from transactional to litigation based areas.
