Intellectual Property & Technology Law – What does an IP lawyer do? Is a technical background required? Where are the emerging job opportunities? Professors Kali Murray and Bruce Boyden will answer these questions and explain how Marquette’s IP program introduces students to the practice of intellectual property and technology law. You will also learn about participation in the Intellectual Property Law Review, moot court competitions, and the Intellectual Property Law Society.
Environmental Law and Water Law – Professor David Strifling, Director of the Water Law & Policy Initiative, and two recent alumni will join us to talk about our comprehensive curricula in environmental and water law, including opportunities to imagine better and more effective policies, and to understand the cultural, economic, and political forces that shape the legal landscape and public attitudes toward the environment. Learn more about how our students work with community leaders and environmental organizations through internships and research opportunities. Explore the innovative Water Law and Policy Initiative.
Taxation and Estate Planning – There is an old saying that “you can’t avoid death or taxes.” Hence, tax law is very important, even for those who don’t plan on becoming tax lawyers. Join us as Professor of Law and Associate Dean for Enrollment Vada Lindsey and two recent graduates discuss the taxation and estate planning curricula. This is a great opportunity to also learn about pro bono and extracurricular activities and experiential learning related to tax and estate planning. Whether you are interested in transactional law or litigation, this will be an informative session.
Litigation Program – presented by Professors Daniel Blinka & Melissa Love Koenig. From criminal litigation to civil litigation, which deals with disputes such as civil rights, medical malpractice, mortgage foreclosures, and car accidents, litigation is the process by which the government or individuals pursue and defend claims. Join us to learn more about the litigation curriculum and the many opportunities for clinics, judicial internships, supervised fieldwork, and moot court competitions.
Dispute Resolution Program – presented by Professors Andrea Schneider & Judith McMullen. Perhaps family law, criminal law, and business law come to mind when you think of dispute resolution. No matter your career interests—arbitration, mediation, client counseling, and negotiation skills are more in demand than ever before. Attend this session to learn more about our nationally recognized Dispute Resolution Program and how the curriculum helps prepare students to apply tools to resolve disputes in various areas, including disputes among family members.
Sports Law Program – presented by Professor Paul Anderson, Director, Sports Law Program and National Sports Law Institute. Join us for this session which will explore the nation's most comprehensive Sports Law Program, and discuss the many opportunities it offers for students, from our extensive sports law course offerings and Certificate program, to our internship and networking opportunities with organizations and individuals in the sports industry, to opportunities to be part of multiple sports law competition teams, the Marquette Sports Law Review and more.
Business & Commercial Law – presented by Associate Dean for Academic Affairs and Professor of Law Nadelle Grossman. The term “business law” encapsulates three separate, but related, areas of the law: corporate law, securities law, and commercial law. It also intersects with real property law, tax law, intellectual property law, and others. Join Dean Grossman and student(s) to explore our business law curriculum and opportunities for hands-on learning.
Public Policy/Politics – presented by Professor Atiba Ellis. Public law centers on constitutional law and includes all areas of law that have to do with the way in which local, state, and federal governments affect the lives of their citizens. Join Professor Ellis for a discussion on the study and practice of public law and politics.
