Professional responsibility and legal ethics are taught separately and as part of all other law courses. Law office management and litigation management include the use of software and other current technology, as well as the structure of a law office and the flow of litigation. Legal education is founded in core courses, like science and composition that provide students with the skills necessary to study and analyze law.
