Can you please elaborate? I'm totally in the dark on that one.
1L's here usually take first semester: tort I, propert I, contract I, legal writing I, and legal research. For the second semester they take: torts II, propert II, contracts II, con law I, civ pro I, and legal writing II. Then as a 2L civ pro II, con law II and crim procedure are mandatory (for graduation).
For you lucky upcoming 1L's all these classes are being merged into only 1 semester each, and legal research and writing are being merged into 1 class also (although I am unsure about if you will still have legal writing I and II). Basically it just frees up more space for you to be able to take more classes (that you want to take) during 2L year and less of a course load during 1L.
edit: you still have to take crim procedure
