The University of Denver Sturm College of Law (Denver Law) commits to excellence in teaching and scholarship, and to producing graduates who are practice-ready and equipped to lead in our profession and our society.

Denver Law engaged in a strategic planning process from July 2009 through May 2010. The process was designed to provide a deep understanding of the changing environment for legal practice and legal education. To that end, we reached out to our key stakeholders: the practicing bar, the judiciary, consumers of legal services, alumni, faculty, students, staff and university administration. We also researched national-level changes in legal education and the practice of law.

Based on this data, the law school built a strategic plan that permits us to meet the changing needs of the legal community and embrace the calls for reform in legal education while building upon our core strengths. By doing so, the Sturm College of Law will be a leader in the future of legal education.

Practice Ready, Client Ready, Ready for Impact

In today's legal market, law schools must strive to graduate students who are practice-ready, rather than students who will need to learn essential skills on the job. By a practice-ready graduate, we mean a student who has attained entry level proficiency in a significant number of important professional skills. There are some skills lawyers must learn on the job, but there are many skills that can and should be taught or introduced in law school.

Denver Law recognizes that effective legal education requires a balanced curriculum - one that offers exposure to each of the three Carnegie apprenticeships: doctrine, skills (with an emphasis on writing), and professional identity. We will build upon our faculty's commitment to teaching and the law school's interactive environment as we further integrate experiential learning into the curriculum.

Fortunately, Denver Law has been at the forefront of skills education. The law school has prominent and well-established clinics (which include both litigation and transactional live client opportunities), the largest externship program in the country, and extensive trial advocacy program and more. This commitment to integration of doctrine, skills, and professional identity is also exemplified by our Lawyering Process program, and an increasing number of simulation based courses. We will prepare students for the legal profession or their chosen career by building upon these existing strengths, and by offering more integrated and experiential learning in a well-balanced curriculum.

Building the Future of Legal Education Today

As a result of the strategic plan we adopted last year, we have committed to a Specialization Initiative that will foster expertise and engagement in five subject matter areas where there are likely to be good jobs for our grads. And we have committed to a Modern Learning Initiative that is designed to produce more practice-ready and well-balanced lawyers by providing more experiential learning opportunities for our students - experiences that combine doctrine, skills and professional identity.

We have made great strides in implementing our plan. At the end of the last school year, the faculty leaders who were responsible for each area of our plan reported both to a university trustees working group and to the faculty as a whole. The starting point for each presentation was the list of plan goals and benchmarks for the year, followed by each leader indicating which goals had been accomplished, which goals were under way and where we faced impediments.

The list of accomplishments is impressive. Below are just a few highlights from our ongoing implementation:

  • We will open our new Community Economic Development Clinic this fall, where students will get hands-on experience performing transactional work for real clients under the supervision of clinical professors. (This is one of only a handful of programs like it in the country and was our most popular clinic with enrolling students.)
     
  • Professor Roberto Corrada accepted an appointment to our Chair of Modern Learning. Roberto and our Modern Learning Committee (faculty leaders from all parts of our curriculum and bar leaders in experiential learning, such as Mark Caldwell, JD '76, of the National Institute for Trial Advocacy and Judge Robert McGahey) are guiding our faculty in adopting more experiential and integrated models of teaching.
     
  • We have adopted certificate programs in four of our five areas of specialization (with the fifth on the way), which will enable our students to document to potential employers that they have completed a course of study designed to develop mastery of doctrine, skills and professional identity in one of these legal specialty areas.

In 2003, a state-of-the-art law center opened on the main campus of the University ofDenver. The 181,000 square footFrank H. Ricketson Jr. Law Building - which houses one of the most technologically sophisticated legal teaching centers in the United States - is the nation's first law school building to be certified "green" in accordance with the U.S. Green Building Council's Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification standards.

The University of Denver began offering clinical legal education in 1904, one of the first law schools in the nation to do so. That tradition continues today through five clinical opportunities offered at the law school.

Students participating in the Civil Litigation Clinic help low-income clients work through civil controversies. In addition to integrating legal theory and practice, students in the Civil Litigation Clinic are required to perform some sort of community outreach in order to better understand the clients whom they serve. Recent cases have included housing discrimination, eviction defense, civil protection orders, and wage and hour claims.

The model of the Civil Litigation Clinic is based on student self-direction and community outreach. Because of this focus, students have a great deal of input into and ability to shape their clinical experience. With this focus, students are able to obtain a variety of learning experiences and target their expressed areas of interest.

The Criminal Representation Clinic offers an intense experience in the criminal justice system for students interested in becoming criminal defense attorneys or prosecutors. Students represent low-income clients with a wide range of legal problems, including misdemeanors such as assault or DUI/DWAI, and municipal ordinance violations such as disturbing the peace and shoplifting. Students appear in court at arraignment, pre-trial conferences, trial, and sentencing. As participants in the Criminal Representation Clinic, students practice interviewing and counseling, fact investigation, basic research and writing, oral advocacy, drafting, and legal analysis. Students are introduced to the complex ethical dilemmas that defense attorneys face while working in the criminal justice system. The clinic also offers students an opportunity to think about the underpinnings of the criminal justice system and the impact of larger societal ills, which may play a part in our client's journey through that system.

The Civil Rights and Disability Law Clinic provides services to clients in matters involving civil rights and liberties violations. Students in this clinic represent clients before courts and civil administrative agencies in a broad range of civil and human rights matters, including discrimination based on disability, race, gender, religious, age and national origin discrimination, as well as constitutional law issues.

The Community Economic Development (CED) Clinic teaches transactional practice skills to students through the representation of nonprofit corporations, community-based associations and enterprises, and small businesses. The clinic provides both challenging client work and a rigorous classroom component to expose students to substantive legal concepts related to community economic development and business law. Client work may include drafting corporate formation documents; assisting nonprofit organizations with tax-exempt applications and maintenance of tax-exempt status; drafting and negotiating contracts; acting as general counsel to nonprofit corporations and small businesses; working with state and local government agencies; and assisting with community-oriented real estate transactions and other transactions related to economic development and redevelopment projects. In addition, students may research issues related to public policies that affect clinic clients and provide community education workshops on substantive law issues pertinent to the clinic's practice areas. Students also learn practice skills, including client counseling, negotiation, research and planning, drafting, advocacy, and understanding the role of culture and group dynamics. Through both client work and the seminar component, students are exposed to a variety of social systems that impact their clients and are encouraged to think reflectively about the nature of transactional advocacy in the public's interest. Students direct all aspects of the representation and work under the supervision of Professor Patience Crowder and a Clinical Fellow.

Students in the Mediation and Arbitration Clinic perform simulations and mediate actual cases in the county court and through the clinic. Recent mediation cases have included criminal misdemeanors, restraining orders, and employment disputes involving city workers. Students participate in an orientation class, which focuses on lawyering skills, mediation skills, and ethics.

The Environmental Law Clinic at the University of Denver Sturm College of Law provides a real world experience for students interested in environmental law who wish to develop practical legal skills. Under the supervision of Mike Harris, director of the Environmental Law Clinic, and supervising attorney Kay Bond, students represent environmental advocacy organizations before courts and administrative agencies in a broad range of environmental matters, including endangered species, public lands, and air quality. The clinic's efforts have produced significant protections for the environment and public health.

Students who want to work in the community can do so through the countless part-time jobs available in Denver through DU's extensive Legal Externship Program. The Sturm College of Law facilitates more than 400 externship placements each year throughout the Denver area, throughout the U.S., and abroad. Students serve as clerks for judges with the Supreme Court, Court of Appeals, Federal Court and State Court or work in private law firms, government or non-profit agencies, or corporate counsel offices. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit is located in Denver, as is the U.S. District Court and the Colorado Supreme Court. Most U.S. Government agencies have regional offices in Denver, and many national law firms locate offices here as well.

The University of Denver Sturm College of Law produces the following scholarly journals, all of which are student-run and edited: Denver University Law Review; Denver Journal of International Law & Policy; Sports and Entertainment Law Journal; Criminal Law Review; Transportation Law Journal and Water Law Review, the only one of it's kind in the UnitedStates. Each addresses unique issues, and students have many topics on which they can write.

In addition to the J.D. degree, Denver Law offers a Master of Laws in Environmental and Natural Resources Law and Policy (LLM), a Master of Resources Law Studies (MRLS), a Certificate of Studies (CS) in Natural Resources Law and Policy, and Certificates in select natural resources courses. These are designed for attorneys and professionals who need cutting-edge information and skills and responds to the recent proliferation of resources and environmental laws throughout the world. The Master of Science in Legal Administration (MSLA) is dedicated to advancing the establishment, development, education, and training of the profession of managing legal organizations. MSLA course work presents business management principles and fosters an understanding of the legal culture and the court and practice environments.

The University of Denver is an ideal setting in which to pursue a J.D. along with an advanced degree in another field. Dual degrees are offered in Business Administration, Economics, Geography, History, Intermodal Transportation, International Management, International Studies, Legal Administration, Mass Communications, Mineral Economics (with the Colorado School of Mines), Professional Psychology, Psychology, Real Estate and Construction Management, Social Work, Sociology, Computer Science and Urban and Regional Planning.
