to the required first-year courses, each first-year student must take one elective.
Elective courses that are open to first-year students are identified in the
course schedule published each semester by the School of Law. To avoid scholastic
difficulty, the student should complete all required work except the seminar
before the final semester.
This change is necessary to add the two courses, (1) Criminal Procedure: Prosecution
and (2) Criminal Procedure: Investigation, which also meet the Constitutional
Law II requirement.
