How many applicants are you accepting?
There will be no more than 20 people per class. The program requires focused attention by practicing attorneys, so the class sizes need to be small. Applications are reviewed on a rolling basis, so applicants are encouraged to apply early to improve chances of admission.

Casual dress unless we are taking a field trip to court or another firm.
What is a typical day?
The day begins at 10 am with an overview of the tasks for that day and an overview lesson about a specific area of law.
