On Wednesday, January 11, 2017, Chapman University Dale E. Fowler School of Law’s Constitutional Jurisprudence Clinic (CJC) will host its second boot camp session for 2L and 3L students.
The four-hour event, which is free to all eligible students, is designed for those looking to learn more about pursuing careers in Constitutional advocacy. Students will hear from an impressive lineup of guests to sharpen their technical skills in Constitutional litigation. Below is a list of panelists who will participate in the program.
- Professor Anthony Caso – Clinical Professor and Director, Constitutional Jurisprudence Clinic, Chapman University Fowler School of Law
- John Eastman – Founding Director, Claremont Institute Center for Constitutional Jurisprudence; Henry Salvatori Professor of Law and Community Service, Chapman University Fowler School of Law
- Candace Burr Queathem (‘14) – Attorney and former Chapman University Fowler School of Law CJC student
- Professor Larry Salzman – Principal Attorney and Director, Liberty Clinic Project, Pacific Legal Foundation; Adjunct Professor, Chapman University Fowler School of Law
- Damien Schiff – Principal Attorney, Pacific Legal Foundation
Although required for students enrolled in the CJC, the boot camp is also open to those seeking to learn more from the panelists about the important appellate work and other research being done by the clinic.
“I would definitely encourage others to attend the boot camp, even if they aren’t planning on taking the CJC,” said Matthew T. Vela (JD ’18), who participated in the first boot camp event last year. “The CJC provides students with a hands-on approach to writing Constitutional briefs, and I thought the presentations and discussions of past cases were particularly helpful in imparting the impact that students in the CJC can have.”
