KU Law students take a core curriculum of doctrinal classes in their first year, along with the first-year Lawyering Skills Program. Upper-level students have access to more than 100 courses and can design their own paths.
More than 75% of upper-level classes have 25 or fewer students. First-year students take half their classes in small sections. Those small working groups allow for personal interaction with professors and an informal learning environment that encourages in-depth discussion.
Two of your first-year courses will be taught in a small section of about 20 students, providing personal interaction with professors, an informal learning atmosphere that encourages in-depth discussion and analysis, and the opportunity to bond with classmates who will be friends and professional colleagues for years to come.
Once you have conquered your first-year requirements, you will have access to more than 100 upper-level courses in a variety of practice areas, from antitrust law to sports law. Many are seminars, simulation courses, directed research or clinics.
