The First Year Matters and our innovative approach sets us apart.
The first year of your legal education is among the most important as you are being exposed to a new way of thinking. It is in the first year that you will start to learn the substance and skills you will need to be successful lawyers. Our first year curriculum is innovative and supportive. In addition to the basic substantive courses in your first semester, you will also be introduced to the fundamentals of legal writing, analysis, and research. We also provide a one credit class - what we call a “learning lab” - to help you become successful students. In the second semester, rather than taking a large number of courses at once, you will follow a module approach for some courses. This approach supports your learning by limiting the number of different subject areas you study at any one time. Other courses will be taught over the entire spring semester, giving you the best of both worlds. And, because experiential learning is so important, the second semester includes an “experiential lab” exposing you to lawyering skills right from the start. We believe this first year curriculum provides a very strong foundation to your success in legal education.
