Once students have completed their required course work, there is no mandatory curriculum. The upper-division courses a student takes will vary dramatically, depending on the student's interests and the area of law in which the student wishes to practice upon graduation. As a general rule, however, students often find courses that develop strong writing, oral communication, and other practical skills to be useful in beginning their legal career.
