* This course is only required for students graduating in May 2020 or later.

In order to graduate, students must also satisfy an Experiential Education Requirement. To do this, a student must take one or more experiential course(s) totaling at least six credit hours from the combined approved list of clinical, simulation, and practice courses. The faculty strongly recommends that at least one of these courses be a clinical course, and the requirement may be satisfied by taking all six credit hours in clinical courses. To be approved as an Experiential Education Requirement course, the course must require a student to give substantial attention to developing legal practice skills though active participation in real or simulated law practice experiences. 

Additional Degree Options

If your schedule can’t accommodate full-time law school, we also offer several other degree programs, including flexible part-time JD scheduling options.
