A COMPREHENSIVE CURRICULUM The required curriculum at Southwestern includes 17

traditional core courses (for SCALE, see page 5). The rich variety of elective offerings enables students to focus on or sample such areas as business, criminal, entertainment, environmental, family and juvenile, health, international or other fields of law. Although courses often intersect several areas of law, the following list suggests groupings by subject matter, as well as faculty who teach those courses. Note: Courses may be listed under more than one category.
