Course Registration for First-Year Law Students

FALL 2020:

First year students do not have to register for classes in the fall; the Registrar’s Office will enroll first-year students in courses by section (Section 1, Section 2, Section 3, Section 4, Section 5, and Section 6). All first year students are required to take: Civil Procedure, Torts, Criminal Law, Constitutional Law, Contracts, and Legal Practice Skills (a yearlong course), as well as a regulatory elective and a general elective, taken in the spring.  Students are required to register for spring courses during advance registration (in November).

Students choose one course from the regulatory elective group and one course from the  general elective group.  The Registrar’s Office will enroll you in your required spring courses (Constitutional Law, Criminal Law/Torts, and Legal Practice Skills).
