The regular winter term in the Faculty of Law is divided into two terms. The January Term runs for the four weeks after classes begin in January. Students enrolled in first year will work exclusively in small groups developing research, writing, and advocacy skills during the January Term. Students in second and third year will select one from a range of optional January courses. These options are ordinarily restricted to no more than twenty-five students, and offer a major writing or other active learning component. Students will fulfill their remaining course requirements for the year during the February/March/April Term.
