J.D. Curriculum

J.D. Course Offerings in Areas of Special Interest

With more than 130 elective courses and seminars offered in any given year, Chicago-Kent students have many ways to shape their upper-level studies. Some second- and third-year students choose to explore a variety of subjects that interest or promise to challenge them, with an eye toward obtaining a general, well-rounded legal education. Others choose to focus on a particular area of interest, often tapping into opportunities afforded by Chicago-Kent's J.D. certificate programs, institutes and centers. In some circumstances, J.D. students are eligible to take classes in Chicago-Kent's LL.M. programs.
