Law Degree

The future of legal education for the past 45 years, NUSL educates both our JD and LLM students through academically rigorous coursework integrated with our signature Cooperative Legal Education Program (co-op). The unparalleled leader in providing students with practical experience, only NUSL offers LLM students the chance to participate in a full-time co-op and graduate with polished legal skills, valuable connections in your field and confidence in your chosen field of expertise. NUSL's mission is to be a global leader in experiential legal education, providing students with the knowledge, skills, and ethical and social values essential to serving clients and the public interest, now and in the future. Through teaching, scholarship, and public service we work to promote social justice and enhance understanding of law's impact on individuals, enterprises, and communities, at home and around the world. NUSL's unique approach to training lawyers is known as cooperative legal education. Students complete a traditional first year of academic study; for the remaining two years, they alternate between quarters of full-time jobs (''co-ops'') in the legal workplace and attending classes. Through their co-op experiences, students will be exposed to an array of legal practice opportunities, observe different approaches to the practice of law and determine for themselves which areas of the law most interest them.
