*Beginning with the 2014 summer session, students interested in criminal law should follow the requirements for the Prosecution & Defense Track. Students currently working on the Criminal Law certificate will complete the current requirements for that certificate. In Fall 2016, the Prosecution & Defense track will replace the Criminal Law certificate. Also, Criminal Motions Practicum requirement will be waived for students graduating during the 2016-17 academic year. Students will still be required to complete the total required credits for the certificate.
