The scholarly and teaching expertise of the faculty can be organized into fields of study. J.D. students gain core knowledge and basic skills in the first year curriculum. LL.M. students and J.D. students in the second and third year may may concentrate their studies in one or more of the specialized fields. Students are not required to select a specialized field of study; the fields simply illustrate the possible areas of law that students can focus on.
Students can choose specialized tracks such as energy law and policy, or design a custom program of study to meet their career goals.
