Saper Immersion’s 2018 session will be held June 25-29.
Currently in its 5th year, Saper Immersion offers high school and college students the opportunity to explore legal career paths in one exciting week. The course takes place at Saper Law Offices and is taught by Daliah Saper and other Saper Law attorneys. The curriculum consists of negotiation and writing exercises, field trips to the state and federal courthouse, and mock legal proceedings. Since Saper Law practices heavily in the areas of social media and digital technology, a key component of the exercises will involve entertainment, business, and internet related legal case studies. Guest lecturers including attorneys practicing in big law firms, nonprofits, and in-house corporations will also meet with the class. The program has been profiled by the Chicago Law Bulletin, Tech.Co, Chicago Lawyer Magazine, and Built In Chicago.
Both high school and college students are encouraged to apply via the Saper Immersion website. Applications for the 2018 session are due April 1. Applications are reviewed on a rolling basis, so students are encouraged to apply early. The deadline for application withdrawal is April 27.
