Throughout the curriculum at the School of Law students are challenged to integrate faith and reason into their learning.
The links on the right provide all of the tools that students need to plan their academic careers from the admissions process through graduation.
The first year of study establishes a solid foundation for a deeper understanding of the law and what it means to be a lawyer. With active participation and wide-ranging discussion, students get to know professors and classmates very well.
We are committed to helping students gain the skills they need to thrive as lawyers. Our intensive legal research, analysis and writing program has been recognized as one of the top programs in the country. Lawyering Skills I and II, the first two classes of this acclaimed program, are an important part of the first-year curriculum, forming the basis of your future work.
With more than 100 course offerings, second- and third-year students can explore a specific area of interest and refine their research and writing skills. Before graduation, you will be required to complete a significant research paper under the supervision of a faculty member. In recent years, a number of students have seen their work published in law journals.
