Students should also consider taking School of Education Maymester classes during their second summer or taking summer classes, particularly in the School of Education, to lessen their class load during their 3L year. Law classes which are typically offered during summers include:

  • Constitutional Law
  • Evidence
  • Trial Practice
  • Advanced Legal Research
  • Professional Responsibility
  • Lawyer as Negotiator

(Note that Constitutional Law II and Professional Responsibility must be taken during the 2L year in additional to a third semester of LCR.) For the Master's degree, students need not limit their class choices within the School of Education. Classes taught by Steve Taylor, Doug Biklen, Beth Ferri and Nancy Mudrick would likely satisfy degree requirements. Contact Steve Taylor for specific questions.
