Core Classes

Postby Person » Sun Aug 08, 2010 11:57 am

I know I saw a thread here once about what are the core classes (besides the mandatory 1L classes and legal ethics) that everyone should take. But now I can't find it. Anyone have the link? Failing that, what do you guys think the core classes are?

For litigation, the ones I can remember are Evidence, Administrative Law, Federal Jurisdiction (esp. for clerkships, but good generally), and Trial Advocacy. I have also heard BA is helpful, despite being an essential course for transactional.

I imagine Negotiations is good too, but I don't remember anyone mentioning that in the thread.

I've been told that Secured Transactions is pretty important and the subject matter comes up a lot in both litigation and transactional work. Intro to Tax is also a class that lots of people have recommended to me.

Fed Courts is also pretty useful if you want to litigate.

Federal Income Tax is a good idea, an advanced UCC course is also a good choice (For the business route that is)
