Recommended Courses

No single list of courses can appropriately guide all who are considering law school. Students should not shy away from courses that present demanding examinations: skill in succeeding under rigorously paced conditions will be a factor on the Law School Admissions Test (LSAT), in law school, and on the job as an attorney. The following list of courses reflects recent changes in the format of the LSAT and emphasizes logic, reading comprehension, and the matching of factual situations with legal concepts.

Note: The following courses are just examples of the types of courses that emphasize appropriate skills and concepts, not a checklist of courses for all students to take.
