We're the first to admit it: Learning the law is not easy. You have to sharpen a range of skills, including analysis, writing, and persuasion.
You also have to learn a canon of precedents, concepts, theories, and procedures. The law is rich with subtlety, and learning it is a skill in and of itself. Some students are unsettled by this. A lot of students enjoy it. Many feel bolstered by it.
As a strong academic community, committed to our students, we have designed curricula that produce broadly educated lawyers—and we have developed an approach to teaching the law that is both challenging and supportive.
