Criminal Law Certificate
University of Arkansas School of Law
Earliest start date
The certificate aims to focus on criminal law during law school to prepare themselves for the practice of criminal law or policy. The program will require students to develop litigation skills through at least one criminal law clinic and skills courses while also providing a strong framework in the fundamentals of criminal law and procedure through coursework.
This certificate seeks to make its graduates far more prepared to step into criminal law practice, whether at public agencies such as prosecution or public defender offices or firms, or even in solo practice. The program will seek, through minimum requirements, to ensure qualified candidates graduate ready for practice in criminal law. It will help non-law students provide a strong foundation for policy work or other criminal justice fields.
