J.D. Program

Our rigorous J.D. program combines a strong foundation in the law with opportunities to explore areas of personal interest and engage in hands-on legal work.

Curriculum & Courses

A legal research and writing program that includes small group and personal instruction is a key part of the first year curriculum. The exercises are practical and provide templates students can use during their summer work and in practice.

During the second and third year, students choose from a wide range of electives geared toward their areas of legal interest and complete an in-depth writing project. Second- and third-year students may also gain “real world experience” through the MC Law externship program, a course that matches law students with federal and state agencies, judges, and non-profit organizations.


From opportunities to study law abroad to participating in public interest work to competing on our nationally recognized moot court teams, MC Law offers opportunities for each student to explore the specific areas in which he or she is interested.
