This is an accelerated program for students who have already graduated with a degree or diploma and is designed for students who can demonstrate that they have previously achieved the academic equivalents of four general education credits and College English. This allows the completion of the professional subjects in the curriculum over a period of three semesters instead of four.

As a student, you'll train to become a law clerk, assisting lawyers in private law offices and in the law departments of government and industry. You’ll acquire an understanding of the general principles of law and receive specific training in the skills appropriate for law clerks.
