- a Juris Doctor program
- a dual Juris Doctor/MBA program
The law curriculum and support activities are designed to produce qualified and compassionate attorneys who have a commitment to the highest quality of representation for their clients.
The Law program emphasizes a public interest perspective and analytical and advocacy skills, combined with multiple clinical opportunities. Students may select individualized clinical placements with courts, government agencies, public interest organizations and private practitioners, or they may choose to take part in clinical opportunities through John F.

Each new student in the Law program is assigned to a faculty advisor, a core faculty member, who meets with the student during the first semester to facilitate a transition to law school. The faculty member remains available throughout the students’ years of study to help with issues relating to study, exam-taking, career questions, and more.
