Are you dreaming of becoming a lawyer? Achieve your dreams with a degree in law from UIC. This four-year, intensive course prepares students to practice law knowledgeably and with integrity. UIC takes the preparation of future lawyers seriously, and the comprehensive curriculum that it offers reflects that.
During their time at UIC, law students will be exposed to a diverse range of areas within the law. In addition to civil, criminal, constitutional and procedural law, students will also learn about the history of law and will take courses such as human behavior intended to help them understand clients and parties to an action.
Students will learn using the case study method, which involves studying previous situations in which the law has been applied. Based on the case study, students will be able to see how the law was interpreted. The objective is for students to be able to see a legal problem or conflict in the future and, based on what they have read, analyze the probability of the law finding in favor of their client. A proper analysis will help lawyers decide which strategy they would like to take. On the transactional side, students will also study tax law and contracts and will learn the legal aspects involved in commercial law. Students will be required to complete a final project and an internship, both of which will help them gain practical experience.
