The curriculum is designed to give students a great deal of freedom and flexibility. Apart from a group of core courses, most of which are taught in the first-year, students may select from a large number of courses, seminars and clinical offerings. They may choose to concentrate — to varying degrees — in one or more areas of law or to gain exposure to a broad number of areas. Students should realize, however, that the ability to predict one’s future practice area or areas is not always perfect. Therefore, many students may benefit from taking a relatively wide range of courses.
