Academics

The curriculum of The University of Alabama School of Law offers students the ability to study in both traditional and emerging areas of the law. Supplemented with rich clinical, advocacy, and experiential offerings, students are able to study both the theory and the practice of law. With more than 100 elective courses, students have the benefit of breadth and depth of study as they build their understanding of the law, equipped with a firm base of knowledge and important analytical skills.

First-Year

Each student must take at least one seminar as a requirement for graduation. (An Independent Study does not satisfy the seminar requirement.)

Each student is required to successfully complete professional skills or experiential courses. Students in the class of 2019 must successfully complete at least six credit hours in designated experiential courses, and students in the classes of 2017 and 2018 are required to successfully complete three credit hours of professional skills courses. These courses are chosen by the student. The course listings provided by the Law School Records Office indicate which classes qualify.
