J.D. Course Selection FAQ


a. Do you suggest any formula for picking classes?

One suggested formula for arranging your schedule would be: one bar class, one other exam- based class, one seminar, and one experiential course. With this formula, you would take two classes with final exams, writing one paper and developing practical lawyering skills through experiential or clinical coursework. This is just a suggested formula, but feel free to tailor it and pick a schedule that works best for you. If you would rather take three classes with exams, just make sure you space out those exam dates to give yourself enough time to study in between exams (see below).
