In your upper-level years, you will choose from among a rich and diverse selection of specialized courses that build on your first-year foundation.
You can sample from a wide variety of courses in fields such as health law, intellecutal property, privacy, criminal law and public interest law, to name just a few. If you who want to specialize in a specific area of law, you will have the opportunity to combine courses and clinics in your academic terms with full-time work with employers across the globe during your co-op terms. By the time you graduate, you will be better prepared for the practice of law than students at any other law school in the country.
While the law school encourages a broad exposure to the law through academic and cooperative work, we realize that some students may wish to focus on a specific academic area. A list of upper-level courses is provided to assist students in their selections. Students who are interested in particular aspects of legal practice should note that the Co-op Program provides the full range of complementary practice experiences.
The academic calendar is subject to change. Not all courses are offered each academic year. Please refer to degree requirements for information about specific required courses and other requirements.
