In recent weeks, several UNC School of Law Moot Court and Trial Teams have enjoyed success in prestigious national competitions. Our students have also been involved in planning and hosting competitions at UNC. Regardless of the outcome, our students consistently cite moot court and trial teams as an important way to build confidence and practical skills that will help them in the court room and beyond.

For your reading enjoyment, UNC School of Law has just published the spring/summer 2013 issue of Carolina Law magazine. In this issue we highlight our student externship program (p. 23). You can also learn about our newly reinvigorated moot court program (p.21).
Interested in learning more from current students and recent alumni about how our expanded curricular and extra-curricular activities have prepared them for a successful career? Read “Getting Practical” (p. 18).
We look forward to seeing you on campus in August, but in the meantime, we hope you enjoy this taste of what it will be like to be a Carolina Law student.

Carolina Law provides the kind of practical experiences that will prepare you to excel in the real-world practice of law.
Our first-year students build a strong foundation for legal learning in our innovative and intensive writing and research program. More than 25 newly developed transition-to-practice courses offer second- and third-year students hands-on learning in a broad range of practice areas, from bankruptcy to biotechnology.
Carolina Law's Externship Program enhances the traditional classroom experience by placing more than 150 students annually with practicing lawyers and judges in the community, the state and beyond. Student externs explore particular areas of practice, while developing key lawyering skills.
