The Lawyering Program embodies a comprehensive and interrelated approach to making students "client ready" by the time they graduate from law school. It includes 1L and upper level legal writing courses, clinical and externship offerings, our intramural and external moot court programs, the trial advocacy, and skills courses, and our diverse array of public interest pro bono opportunities. The National Jurist has rated our program at an "A’" level, based on our course offerings and innovations.

All of our students fulfill multiple legal writing and skills requirements in upper-level courses: requirements that exceed the American Bar Association's. Consistent with best practices in legal education, moreover, these courses must meet detailed standards of sequenced, individual feedback.
