Course Selection and Academic Advising
The University of Connecticut School of Law offers over 150 courses outside of the first year curriculum. These courses vary in format and cover a broad spectrum of legal areas. Deciding which courses to choose can be a daunting task for some students. These pages have been developed to facilitate that process for you. Academic advising, however, is an individualized art. There is no standard curriculum appropriate for all students. Thus, in addition to reviewing the material provided here, you are strongly encouraged to discuss course selection with your academic advisor and other members of the law school community.
Please also remember that you cannot possibly take all the courses suggested. The study of law is a life long process and law school is a (short) three or four years. We encourage you to take courses that are intrinsically appealing to you as well as courses that you need to take for other reasons. Law school offers the opportunity to acquire a broad-based knowledge of the law which will serve you well in whatever career you choose.
