Structure of the Required Curriculum

The academic program at the University of Maryland Francis King Carey School of Law begins with a structured curriculum of required courses for the first several semesters, with the opportunity for elective courses later in each student's academic career. The structure of the required curriculum differs depending on the division in which the student is enrolled.

After the first year and with advance permission, students may switch from one division to the other and students need take only a majority of credits in the division for which they are registered. However, beginning with the fall 2004 entering class, students first enrolling in the evening program who after the first year receive permission to switch to the day program must continue to take required courses, except for Legal Profession (or comparable course) and Advanced Legal Research, in the evening.
