Torts = 3 sections (~80 students)
Civil Procedure = 3 sections (~80 students)
Criminal Law = 2 sections (~120 students)
There are essentially 3 sections: A, B, and C. Each section has approximately 80 people. Your section is designated by your Torts class.
I'll start with an example. My schedule for the fall was as follows:
Civ Pro B
Crim Law A
Therefore, I was in section B. So because Torts and Civ Pro have 3 sections each, you will be with the same 80 students for those two classes. However, because Crim Law has only two sections, it is split in half. So 40 students from section B are put in Crim Law A, and the other 40 are put in Crim Law B. Since I was in B, my section was split.
It's a little bit complicated, but does that make sense? Let me know if you want some more clarification, I may not have explained it so well.
The easiest way to think about it though is by legal writing/research class. Each writing class has approximately 20 students. You will go to every class with these 20 students.
I think I get it. But do you have any insight as to how they divide the sections up? Is it done alphabetically, randomly, etc.?
