“What exactly are upper-level elective course tracks,” you may be wondering. Well, let me tell you. As you know, in order to graduate, students at the Charleston School of Law must complete a set of required courses as well as a selection of elected courses. However, students who are interested in a specific practice area of law can focus their elective and skills courses to enhance their understanding of that particular practice area. Currently, the upper-level course tracks include Business Law, Civil Litigation and Dispute Resolution, Criminal Practice, Public Policy and Service, Small Firm Practice, and Tax Practice. Choosing to complete an upper-level elective course track is a great way to ensure that you are broadening your skill set in a specialized area of law, increasing the likelihood that your credentials will stand out as you begin your job search.
