Legend

* Basic Core

Core public interest law and policy courses identified as essential by the law faculty teaching in this area (see below) for all J.D. students (preferably taken in the second year).

Note: These courses assume students have no prior coursework in public interest law and policy.

** Expanded Core

Core public interest law and policy courses (in addition to the Basic Core above and additional public interest law and policy courses as schedules permit) recommended by the law faculty teaching in this area for students interested in public interest law and policy.

Professional Responsibility is an essential course in all disciplines. It provides the "rules of the road" that lawyers must follow, regardless of their area of expertise.
