Our curriculum will expose you to critical perspectives on law. You will learn to view law as a social institution and intellectual enterprise. We offer a variety of elective upper-year courses, which allow you to specialize in an area of interest including:

  • Corporate/commercial law

  • International law

You will gain substantive knowledge of the law, skills in critical thinking, problem solving, advocacy and consensus building.
