Our curriculum reflects our two priorities:
First, it produces graduates who are practice-ready and prepared to hit the ground running. This part of our curriculum is all about experiential learning, the most effective way to teach lawyers. With our nationally recognized clinics and legal writing program, one of the largest externship programs in the country and an ever-growing menu of problem- and simulation-based capstone courses, Denver Law is a leader in training skilled lawyers, who graduate with meaningful and marketable legal experience.
Second, our curriculum includes several substantive areas of specialization, designed to allow our students to tailor their education to their passions and career goals:
- Natural Resources and Environmental Law
- International Legal Studies
- Intellectual Property Law
- Corporate and Commercial Law
- Workplace Law
- Constitutional Rights and Remedies
In each of these growing areas, we provide cutting-edge instruction by leading scholars and practitioners, as well as experiential learning opportunities. We offer full-time and part-time class schedules, so you can earn your degree at a convenient time for you, and dual degree programs that allow you to supplement your J.D. with an advanced degree. And, with a student-faculty ratio of 9.3:1 you’ll be sure to get the individual attention you deserve.
