Author: Lauren Love

Notre Dame Law School faculty will host advising sessions for students as they select courses for next semester and beyond, organized by fields of law. The Law School’s Programs of Study give students the opportunity to build expertise in a specific area of the law.

The advising sessions are designed to provide students with a range of long-term options for courses that will best prepare them for the careers they seek.

“Law students can take advantage of popular focus areas to fit their interests and career goals,” said Peter Horvath, director of Student Services. “The seven areas of study offer students a wide choice of academic specialties with courses taught by faculty who are leaders in their fields.”

The Law School’s seven programs of study are: Law, Ethics, and Public Policy, Intellectual Property and Technology, Business Law, Public Law, Global Law, Environmental Law and Criminal Law.

The information sessions began on Tuesday and run through Monday, Nov. 14.
