Additional Requirements

Students must also take the following courses: A course in Professional Responsibility (may be taken any semester after the first year); Legal Writing 3 and Legal Writing 4 (full-time students must take these courses in the second year; part-time students may take these courses in either the second or third year); and a seminar (must be taken after completion of 54 credit hours and after completion of Legal Writing 4).

Students beginning in Summer 2016 or later must also complete a total of six credits from an approved list of experiential courses. Most students will already satisfy four of these credits through the required sequence of Legal Writing 3 and Legal Writing 4. However, students who opt for the Legal Writing 4 equivalency should consult the list of approved courses to determine whether the equivalency activity counts toward the experiential requirement. Law Review does not count toward the requirement.
