JD Program

General

Program Description

Full-time students may choose to begin their studies in June by completing a single Criminal Law class during a six week summer term, thereby reducing their fall course load. Classes are offered at convenient times for those working during the summer. If you're new to the region, summer is the perfect time to settle into life in the Emerald City!

In addition to reducing the fall class load, students have the opportunity to lay a solid foundation for their legal studies. During the Criminal Law class, students work collaboratively to develop skills to read and interpret legal text, synthesize rules and policy, and engage in effective legal analysis. By the end of the summer, students gain an appreciation for the nuances of legal study and understand how to apply the skills learned to their fall courses.
