w: Current Students / Academic Life/Concentrations

The Law School enables students to tailor their legal studies through one of eight available Concentrations in the areas of Business Law, Criminal Justice, Environmental and Energy Law, Health Law and Bioethics, Human Rights, Intellectual Property and Technology Law, International Law, and Labor and Employment Law. Information about Concentration requirements and Faculty Chairs is available on the Current Student pages of the website. Interested students are encouraged to confer early in their legal education with the Faculty Chair of a given Concentration to discuss their intended course of study and how a Concentration could enhance their career development. Students pursuing Concentrations are required to note their Concentration on the Graduation Assessment forms completed in the Fall of the third year. They must also meet with the Faculty Chair at least two months prior to graduation in order to ensure that Concentration requirements have been met and to complete the Concentration Completion Memorandum. Concentrations are noted on students’ transcripts.
