First Year Courses

As is the case in most law schools, the first year of law study at The University of Arizona includes the study of foundational areas of law upon which later study is built and entirely prescribed. The heart of a student's first year at the College of Law is the Small Section Program. In the first semester of the first year, each student is assigned to a Small Section (approximately 30 students), typically in one of three substantive first year courses: Contracts, Torts or Civil Procedure. Other classes are formed by combining two or more small sections. The required first-year courses are:


606 Constitutional Law I
600A Contracts
602 Criminal Procedure
601A Introduction to Legal and Civil Procedure
603Q Introduction to Legal Research
603P Legal Process, Analysis, and Writing
605 Property
629 The Regulatory State
604C Torts


Required Second or Third Year Courses

After completion of the first year, the remaining curriculum is almost entirely elective, with only four specific course requirements: Evidence, a Legal Profession course, a professional skills course, and the completion of the Substantial Paper Requirement.



608 Evidence
609 Legal Profession
696n Substantial Paper Seminar (Advanced Legal Writing Seminar)

Second and Third Year Elective Courses

The remainder of the curriculum is wholly elective. Students have the opportunity to choose from a wide selection of course offerings in a variety of subject matter areas. Elective offerings change from year to year depending on a variety of factors including developments in the law, society, and the legal profession, as well as changes in the composition of the faculty and visiting faculty.
