Our six concentration programs enable you to deepen your understanding of the legal issues and challenges in a practice area specific to your legal interest. Successful completion of a concentration may also give you an advantage in the job market.
We offer a selection of introductory and specialty courses in six dynamic legal areas:
- Civil Advocacy and Dispute Resolution
- Criminal Law and Advocacy
- Family Law
- Health Law
- Intellectual Property
These programs require that anywhere from 15 to 21 credits be completed in a specific legal area. In completing your concentration you'll choose from many courses while meeting specific requirements. All have a writing requirement and most include a clinical component. Learn more about our clinics. In addition, all offer an honors option.
To complete a concentration, most students begin focusing their coursework in their second year, but many begin planning their concentration as early as the first year.
