The curriculum at Lincoln Law School is designed to offer students a strong foundation in a variety of legal principles. The first two years of study prepare students for more advanced law classes, while developing their skills in communication, organization, and articulation. Courses in the third and fourth years continue to develop and refine the students’ expertise in interpreting and applying legal theories.
When Do Classes Start?
Students may begin study at Lincoln Law School in spring, summer, or fall. Students entering in either spring or summer enroll in specially selected electives prior to beginning the first-year curriculum the following Fall Semester. The spring and summer elective courses are designed to introduce law study and provide an opportunity for students to develop legal background and study skills before entering the more rigorous required First-Year courses.
