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 formative 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, courses will build on subjects taught in the fall semester as well as introduce you to Constitutional and Criminal Law. We believe this first year curriculum provides a very strong foundation to your success in legal education.
