Courses & Registration


At St. Thomas, we know that effective lawyers need not just technical skills, but also a robust set of professional values that require placing service to others over self. Our curriculum is tailored to help you develop a deeper understanding of the law and what it means to be a lawyer, while embracing the importance of relationships.

Here, you will find active participation and spirited discussion (often on topics off the table at other schools) in the classroom, helping you get to know your professors and classmates very well. The relationships you develop with these people - as well as with your mentors and our alumni - provide valuable insight into the concentration of coursework you might pursue as you explore areas of study from more than 100 course offerings.

The University of St. Thomas is registered as a private institution with the Minnesota Office of Higher Education pursuant to sections 136A.61 to 136A.71. Registration is not an endorsement of the institution. Credits earned at the institution may not transfer to all other institutions.
