The pursuit of a J.D. is an intensive undertaking. You need time for study, time for class and on-campus activities, and time for externships and other skills-based training. You also need time for the aspects of your life that don’t stop just because you’ve entered Law School. The Law School offers three options for legal study, and one is just right for you.
Each concentration is responsive to the evolving legal landscape and combines theoretical and practical classroom experience with faculty expertise. Concentration course requirements include a foundation class, a course fulfilling the upper-level writing requirement, an experiential course, an externship related to the concentration, and two or more additional courses from an elective options menu. Successful completion of all requirements will result in the awarding of a concentration certificate that denotes a specialization, if applicable.
Within several of the major concentrations, students can specialize their studies as follows:
