SUBJECT AREA CONCENTRATIONS. The law school offers several opportunities for students who wish to concentrate their studies in a specific area of law.  Students pursuing a concentration may use the concentration requirements to guide their choices about course selection.  Additionally, a completed concentration may help students signal to prospective employers their interest and focus on a particular area of law.

Concentrations are optional and are not required of any student.  A student may declare their intention to complete a concentration by submitting a form to the Registrar any time after their first full year (for full-time students) or after their first two years (for part-time students) up until the start of their last semester of study.

Students participating in the concentration program must have a minimum average of B for courses within the concentration.  The specific requirements for each concentration are listed below.

Once the concentration requirements have been successfully met and approved by the concentration advisor, the student’s transcript will bear a notation that a concentration in the specified area of law has been completed.

PLEASE NOTE:  Not all of the courses listed in the requirements below are offered every year.  Additionally, some courses may have limited enrollment or have enrollment determined by a selection process
