Graduation Requirements Information - 2008 and Thereafter
Beginning with the Class of 2008 (students entering in the Fall 2005), all students must complete the following:
- Set first-year curriculum of 29 credits.
- Must earn a total of at least 88 credits over the three years, six semesters of which must be in residence.
- Successfully complete the following required courses:
- Constitutional Law I & II
- Legal Profession
- Moot Court (Reimels) *
- Practical Writing Course

* Law Journal Members are exempt from this requirement.
Several courses, although not required, are considered basic foundation courses, they are:
- Administrative Law
- Corporations I and II
- Decedents' Estates and Trusts
- Introduction to Federal Taxation
- Trial Practice
These courses provide the conceptual building blocks upon which other areas of legal study and legal practice build.
Every student must ensure that he or she meets all graduation requirements. The Registrar's Office can help students access their academic information, but responsibility for verifying that requirements are met remains solely with the student. Students must review and sign a Course Confirmation Form each semester to ensure they are officially registered, and will receive credit, for the courses they are taking.
