We believe strongly in an academic program that integrates traditional and experiential learning. Our graduates understand the law, know how to apply it, and are prepared for the dynamic careers that await them.
A Boyd curriculum begins with the essentials, such as civil procedure, criminal law, contracts, constitutional law, property, torts, and legal writing. In years two and three, the curriculum broadens, offering a rich array of elective courses such as environmental, immigration, real estate, or gaming law. Many of our students also participate in legal clinics, journals, and student organizations.
Learning by Doing
Service From the Start
A unique aspect of a Boyd education is an early focus on service learning. All first-year students participate in a community service program, directing informational workshops and providing legal information to those in need.
Roll Up Your Sleeves
From law journal, to clinics, to moot court competitions, Boyd offers many opportunities for gaining practical experience. We encourage our students to extend these opportunities beyond campus with an externship in the courts, legislature or government agency.
