Upper-Level Requirements and Electives
The University of Richmond School of Law offers a wide range of courses and programs for second and third-year students to prepare them for a full spectrum of career opportunities. Students can choose from our extensive list of electives as they explore various areas of interest. Students also have the opportunity to focus on specific areas of law during their law school career. Upper-level students are also encouraged to take advantage of various academic opportunities through the school's many centers, institutes, and clinics.
In addition to these courses, students must successfully complete a writing requirement. The courses through which this requirement can be satisfied are included in the list of elective courses. The notation "Meets upper-level writing requirement" appears after the description of some of these courses. Other courses occasionally will be structured in a format so as to meet the requirement. The list of courses offered, published each year by the law school, indicates all the courses offered that year through which this requirement can be satisfied.
