With 54 research and clinical faculty, as well as an impressive roster of practitioners who share their knowledge and insights in our classrooms, the Law School is a leading center of legal education. The Legal Analysis, Writing and Research program at the Law School is recognized nationally for its innovative teaching of this vital lawyering skill.
Applicants should understand that the curriculum frequently undergoes revision. By the time a student enters the second or third year at the law school, it is likely that the curriculum set forth here may have changed. The most reliable source for current course offering can be found on the School of Law’s website. Also, some courses carry prerequisites or enrollment restrictions, which must be followed.
The university reserves the right to withhold the offering of any course whose continuance is not warranted by sufficient enrollment. Students should check with the Office of the Associate Dean for Academic Affairs for information concerning any changes to law school programs, course offerings, and course requirements.
