What's Your 1L Curriculum?
« on: July 11, 2005, 08:26:05 PM »
I didn't see a topic floating around like this (maybe because its lame, but here goes...)

What school are you going/went to and what was your first year required? I think it will be neat to see the variations across the country. I know ABA has certain standards but from what I have seen it fluctuates in structure/hours etc...

Myself:

Mississippi College

Semester 1:
Torts I - 3
Property I - 3
Contracts I - 3
Criminal Law - 3
Civil Procedure - 3
Legal Analysis - 1
Total - 16 hrs


Semester 2:
Property II - 3
Contracts II - 3
Civil Procedure II - 3
Legal Research and Writing - 3
Torts II - 2
Total - 14 hrs

Required after 1L - Con Law, Ethics, Appellate Advocacy

Thats 6 hours of Contracts, Property, Civ Pro and 5 of torts. I've noticed some schools only give 4-5 to those each. Also anyone out there have Con law or Crim Procedure first year?  :D

Torts (6)
Contracts (6)
Civ Pro (6)
Criminal Law (3) ...2nd semester only
Legal Research & Writing (3) ...2 units 1st semester, 1 the second

All of our classes (except Crim Law and LRR of course) had a midterm in December and a final in May with only one total grade for each class.  Midterms were generally worth 33-40%.
