First Year Class Schedule

Class Information

First-Year Orientation

Orientation will be held Aug. 17 - 21, 2020. The orientation program is part of the first-year instructional program. Attendance and participation in the orientation program is mandatory for all new first-year students. Orientation materials will be emailed in late July. Formal classes for all law students begin August 24.

First-Year Class Schedule

The requirement of 4-5 courses each semester for full time students, 3 courses each semester for part time day students, enables students to focus on fewer subjects more deeply and provides more study/ preparation time in the first year.  

The first year curriculum consists primarily of required classes in a pre-determined schedule. Individual student schedules and book lists will be available in early August. Required first year classes with days/times listed will be posted on our web site in early August.

Full-time day students are randomly assigned to one of two day sections, of approximately 70-75 students each, and are enrolled in 4 courses in the fall semester (14 units) and 5 courses in the spring semester (14 units). Day classes are held Monday through Friday. The part-time day students are randomly assigned to one of two day sections of approximately 65-70 students each and will be enrolled in 3 courses per semester (10 units fall, 12 units spring). Classes are held Monday through Friday.
