A commitment to educating highly skilled and ethical lawyers.  Our Legal Practice Program helps students gain the tools and ethical sensibilities they'll need to be great lawyers.

The Legal Practice Program is a required three-semester course of study.  In the Program, you will work in small classes with a designated member of the Legal Writing Faculty, a practicing attorney, a teaching assistant, and law librarians.  In the first year, you will concentrate on objective and persuasive writing, as well as other practical skills necessary for successful law practice.  In the second year, you will choose a specialized, upper-level course of study, such as criminal or civil practice or appellate advocacy.
