Programs of Study

To guide you in pursuing deepening knowledge and progression as you move through the three years of law school and to create a tool for better coordination and collaboration between faculty members, the faculty has developed “programs of study”.  The seven current programs of study offer suggestions about how you can navigate our extensive course offerings with a sense of their relationship to different avenues of study and opportunities to move progressively through more advanced work before graduation.  More information about this can be found on the Programs of Study page.

Spring Programs of Study Advising Lunches:

Stay tuned for more information to be posted in the spring.
