Quarter System Law Schools

Postby No1ustad » Sat Jan 16, 2010 4:56 am

Which schools have the quarter system? I can think of only one at the moment, University of Chicago, are there others?

The University of Washington is another. In a UW thread a while back, a 1L attending that school spoke positively of the system.

What is the quarter system? I'm assuming it has something to with grades?

Quarter v. Semester

Semester schools have two semesters and a summer/winter break, quarter schools have 3 quarters and summer break (I'm sure they still have a holiday break).

It was both positive and negative. Negative because it made it harder to find internships.

Right, but that person's overall opinion of the system, if we are talking about the same person, was eventually made positive, owing to the system's superiority in terms of how well it prepares one for exams (see below).
