Students looking to learn more about pursuing careers in Constitutional advocacy are invited to join the Chapman University Dale E. Fowler School of Law Constitutional Jurisprudence Clinic (CJC) this summer for a one-day boot camp on August 20. The program is free for all Fowler School of Law 2L and 3L students, and required for students enrolled in the CJC.

Participants will hear from an impressive lineup of legal experts and sharpen their technical skills in Constitutional litigation, including the use of case management software, writing and formatting briefs, and making the most of the available resources in the Hugh & Hazel Darling Law Library.

Speakers will include a federal trial judge who will address common mistakes of young attorneys, a former U.S. Supreme Court clerk providing information on the clerkship experience, and a former CJC graduate sharing on his path to becoming one of the nation’s leading experts on economic liberty. Throughout the day, speakers will discuss the differences between private practice and public interest law, as students discover the key practices for creating winning briefs.

Speakers include:

  • Honorable Andrew Guilford, United States District Court for the Central District of California
  • Paul Alarcon, Chapman Law Class of 2010, attorney with Buchalter Nemer in Orange County
  • Professor Anthony Caso, Director of the Constitutional Jurisprudence Clinic
