ยป Criminal Law Certificate

The Criminal Law emphasis program at the Fowler School of Law provides a tailored education to students interested in pursuing careers as prosecutors or defense attorneys. As with all of Fowler Law's emphasis programs, students learn from experts in their field to gain a competitive edge upon graduating.

Students who complete the Criminal Law program will receive a certificate and transcript notation.

In addition to the specialty coursework, students are encouraged to complete an externship for elective credit. Employers that hire graduates in this area rely heavily on the records built by students who have worked in the offices of prosecutors or defense attorneys while in school. The Fowler School of Law Externship Program provides a useful resource for all students in building experience while also earning course credit.
