Collaboration in teaching and learning
Harvard Law School offers students a curriculum of unparalleled breadth: more than 400 courses, seminars, and reading groups that together reflect the remarkable range of the faculty’s expertise and interests. More than half of these courses have fewer than 25 students enrolled, including more than 75 seminars in which small groups of students work closely with faculty. Teaching and mentoring take place side by side, as faculty and students learn together and collaborate on projects that will change their communities and the world.
What makes our curriculum unique
Available to every student is our clinical program, in which students can develop real-world experience by practicing in one of the School’s 23 in-house clinics or any number of outside organizations.
Writing at HLS
Students also may engage in writing projects for academic credit, supervised by faculty at the top of their fields.
Academic work of all kinds incorporates the world’s broadest and deepest set of opportunities in international, foreign and comparative law studies.
Academic, Clinical, and Research Advising
HLS students can meet with faculty members, clinical practitioners, and research librarians for guidance, advising, and mentorship.
