The law school is vigilant of the need to preserve a tradition of excellence in legal education with the development of new programs and methodologies for the changing world, and offers a part-time online program, in addition to the traditional full-time day program. St. Mary’s Law has also launched the cutting-edge Law Success Program, which includes an innovative legal skills curriculum.
The Law Success Program equips students with the skills necessary to achieve success on law school exams and the bar exam and to launch legal careers.
Before the first year, law students go through a robust orientation program that assesses each student’s capacity for technical reading, comprehension, and critical thinking and introduces the skills and behaviors necessary for the study of law.
During their first year, students are assigned a first-year coach and they engage classmates in a cohort approach to learning. The curriculum, personalized instruction, and assessment continue during second-and third-year education.
