Our J.D. program is both rigorous and comprehensive. The first year fosters a strong foundation in core legal subjects. Courses and concentrations in the second year and beyond provide opportunities for deep immersion in the theory and practice of law and the pursuit of sophisticated, high-demand specializations. Joint degree programs add new perspectives on complex problems.
