Prior to graduation, students must take at least one course in each of the following areas:
General Practice and Bar Preparation
The General Practice and Bar Preparation pathway should be considered by all students every semester when making course selections. In this pathway are the core and foundational courses with which every lawyer should have familiarity.
Certainly most of these courses (particularly in Phase One) are bar-tested in most states, and many students will find a full semester immersed in these doctrines to be useful bar preparation.
But more than just bar preparation, these courses essentially form the common vocabulary for all attorneys. Regardless of an attorney’s specialty, certain doctrines impact all of law, and it is very important to have a background in business, tax, commercial, and administrative law, just to name a few.
Before registering for classes, students should always review the General Practice and Bar Preparation pathway and strongly consider taking any of these classes.
