Instructional offerings change as the law moves in new directions, as faculty members are added, and as new intellectual interests develop among students and faculty. The following courses have been approved by the faculty as instructional offerings at the school. Some courses will be offered every year while others will be offered once every two or three years. A list of the course offerings available in a given semester and the professors who teach them will be posted prior to student registration. In all two-semester courses, the first semester course is a prerequisite to the second-semester course, unless the requirement is waived by the professor.
To assist students in planning and organizing their upper-level course programs, the faculty has divided our upper-level curriculum into 31 course clusters. Students who wish to focus in a particular area of the law will find the clusters helpful as a curriculum guide. Additional counseling and information is available from the academic dean’s office and faculty advisers.
At the Columbus School of Law, the academic programs are a comprehensive legal education weaving a strong theoretical foundation with sophisticated practical training. This distinctive educational approach furnishes students with the mental tools to face the demands of the 21st century.
