Courses

Students prepare for the annual moot court competition

Law schools and legal careers require no particular undergraduate major or course of study. Instead, we craft an individual curriculum plan, working with your major area, to best set you up for a career in law. You should meet with your academic adviser and the pre-law adviser to choose the best courses to meet your needs.

Note: some courses have prerequisites.
