 The School of Law provides a rich range of classes in both the day and evening divisions, which will fulfill the 87 credits you will need to graduate.

In addition to the first year and upper-level required curriculum, we strongly recommend that you prepare for the rigors of legal practice by enrolling in as many of the “foundational courses” as possible to give you the strongest foundation possible. In addition, you will complete upper level writing and advocacy requirements to further refine your learning.

To assist you with your planning,
 please use this chart and
contact us if you have questions. 

Here's a few items to keep in mind with your course planning:

  •  You will take professional responsibility, evidence, and constitutional law II, and civil procedure II as an upper-level student.
  • You will take at least two upper-level writing courses. This may be accomplished by taking two seminars or one workshop and one seminar.
  • You may satisfy your writing requirement through participation in a student journal.
  • You will take at least one advocacy course.
