Method of Instruction
The educational program of the law school is designed to equip its graduates to render the highest quality of legal services, while instilling a sense of professional responsibility. The case method of instruction is used in many courses. The beginning student is trained in the analysis and solution of legal problems by the application of logical reasoning. The course of study is not designed to teach legal rules, but rather to provide a foundation for the application and analysis of the law and the development of professional skills. Substantive courses, dealing with the content of the law, are generally taught by full-time professors. Many courses dealing with the principles governing actual practice before judicial and administrative tribunals are instructed by adjunct professors who are practicing attorneys and judges and leading members of the state bar and bench. An excellent faculty offers a curriculum that is well balanced in theoretical and practical courses and carefully selected to prepare the graduate for the successful practice of law.
