018 – Elective(s) and/or Writing*
After the first year of study, students take a minimum of 26 credits in elective courses. Also, after completing LWRA I & II, students must take a minimum of two upper division writing courses totaling at least five credits; these five credits must be taken over a two-year period. In other words, full-time students must take one upper-division writing course in their 2L year and another in their 3L year. Part-time students must take an upper-division writing course in two out of their final three years. The following courses fulfill the upper division writing requirement: Advanced Appellate Advocacy (2); Transactional Drafting (3); Trial Advocacy and Writing (3); ADR and Writing (3); Pretrial Practice and Procedure (2); Advanced Legal Writing (2), Seminar—Civil Liberties: Litigation (2); Seminar—Civil Liberties: Legislation (2); Legislative Drafting (2); and, International Criminal Law (3). Students may take additional writing courses to fulfill other elective requirements.
