JD Curriculum

Areas of Concentration

The core curriculum is complemented by a wide range of optional courses. The range of choice is unlimited. Students are free to focus their studies in an area of concentration or may take a variety of optional courses without focusing on any particular area of law. Two "Areas of Concentration" are offered for students who want formal recognition of particular areas of interest. Students who complete an Area of Concentration will have this noted on their transcripts. Western Law offers two Areas of Concentration:
