The J.D. program at the University of Mississippi School of Law prepares you to actually practice law, not just to think like a lawyer. Because we believe that lawyers come in as many forms as there are law students, we provide you with a legal education to fit your future career and maximize your options.
We also integrate professional skills throughout our curriculum. Our J.D. Program begins with a strong foundation in heavily-tested bar exam subjects, such as Torts, Contracts, Property, Civil Procedure, Criminal Law and Constitutional Law. Students benefit from a full year of legal research and writing, culminating with appellate brief writing and oral argument. As our students progress through their law school careers, they are able to choose among 20 skills courses in everything from trial practice to legal entrepreneurship.
