All first year students are required to take the list of courses below under 1L Required Courses. After completing the first year curriculum, students may take the remaining required courses and electives in any order they wish, subject to course prerequisites. Students also are required to satisfy the law school’s skills requirement and upper-level writing requirement.
Note: Students matriculating in Fall 2017 or later are required, with minor exceptions, to take upper-level courses in Advanced Legal Analysis, MBE Mastery and Bar Exam Fundamentals. Please see the JD Student Handbook Part VI for more details on these courses designed to further develop skills in writing, complex legal analysis and multiple-choice test-taking skills for the bar exam.
