The UBalt Law curriculum is designed to provide mastery of substantive law and the skills necessary for the practice of law.
The School of Law's required and core courses provide the substantive and procedural knowledge that all attorneys must have. A comprehensive writing program, beginning the first year with the Introduction to Lawyering Skills courses and continuing throughout the curriculum, will hone your writing and language skills—a lawyer's primary tools.

The Introduction to Lawyering Skills course will combine instruction on legal writing with a substantive course such as Torts, Contracts, Criminal Law or Civil Procedure I. The purpose of the ILS course is to teach legal writing skills within the context of a required first-year course. All students, regardless of the ILS course in which they are enrolled, will receive a similar legal writing experience.
UBalt Law provides students opportunities to focus on specific areas of the law after the first year.
Students can choose a concentration, a practice track or take courses to customize their focus. Our goal is to help you shape and customize your law school experience to support your personal and professional goals. UBalt is here to help you.
What's the difference between a concentration and a practice track?
A concentration is comprised of substantive or doctrinal courses in a particular area of the law. Practice tracks combine these courses with practical activities like externships, moot court and co-curricular activities to develop the skills necessary for practice in a particular area of the law. UBalt has nineteen practice tracks and nine areas of concentration.
