Law School Concentrations

Postby corporatemandaorbust » Thu Aug 10, 2017 2:17 am

Which of the top 14 law schools allow you to have a concentration/major instead of just a general law degree? I know it doesn't really matter - I am just curious.

Cornell offers option concentrations in public law, advocacy, business law and regulation, and general practice. To qualify, you have to take a certain number of credits in the category (e.g., 15 credits of "advocacy"-focused classes like Fed Courts, Evidence, etc. will net you a certificate in "advocacy" if you want one).

I think the general consensus at Cornell is that the concentrations are pretty meaningless. I don't think employers care about them (then again, I'm not an employer). Maybe it would be nice to have if you opened a solo practice.
