Upper Level Curriculum

In your second year and after, you will have more flexibility in designing your course schedule. You can choose to add a concentration area or pursue a certificate. The second year is the time to consider competition teams, law journals, or legal clinics. You may want to study in another country, and Pacific McGeorge offers summer and semester abroad options.

The usual course load during the upper level years is 14 to 16 units for Full-Time (Day) Division students, and eight (8) to 10 units for Part-Time (Evening) Division students.
