While the law school encourages a broad exposure to the law through academic and cooperative work, we realize that some students may wish to focus on a specific academic area. A list of upper-level courses is provided to assist students in their selections. Students who are interested in particular aspects of legal practice should note that the Co-op Program provides the full range of complementary practice experiences. Not all courses are offered each academic year. Consult the Course Catalog available from the Office of Academic and Student Affairs for specific information about when courses are offered.
