The Dean's Course: An Introduction to Lawyering and the Legal Profession

The Dean's Course is a required year-long course for first year law students only. The course is designed to introduce first-year students to the profession, generally, and to the universal characteristics valued, and modeled in the profession, more specifically. Each class will focus on either a discrete characteristic consistent with good lawyering, or a foundational aspect of the law or practice that would enhance the first-year law student's education. This is a year-long course.

Please note that course organization and content may vary substantially from semester to semester and descriptions are not necessarily professor specific. Please contact the instructor directly if you have particular course-related questions.
