In this article I have attempted to provide for those interested a brief overview of the K.U. Law School curriculum. The word "overview" is important, because persons outside the law schools often place too much emphasis on such matters as the presence or absence of a particular course, the number of credit hours assigned to each course, or the list of required courses. Others may attempt to judge a curriculum by scanning the often misleading catalog listing of courses. The far more important test is the overall program of study of the typical graduate. The emphasis should not be on specific courses, but on the extent of training provided in each of the several broad areas of the law.
