Areas of Study


Students enrolled in the J.D. Program may choose to focus their studies in a particular interest area and begin developing a specialty within the law.

Berkeley Law’s curriculum gives students the opportunity to study one subject in a sustained manner and at a more advanced level than is usually possible in general law school courses. When students elect this concentrated study, they may take two to four prerequisite courses during their second year and then spend a significant portion of their third year taking more specialized courses, sometimes including a research seminar that addresses advanced issues in the concentration field.
