student in law class

Areas of Focus identify courses, internships and extra-curricular activities that are likely to prove advantageous to students in preparation for practice in various areas of law.  Each of the sections has been developed and prepared by faculty members teaching in the practice area, and is aimed at providing guidance and direction to students as they select courses, internships and pursue other related activities.

It should be noted that the  The practice areas have been determined by student interest, Career Development Office surveys and information about the employment of our law graduates. These categories will be reviewed on a regular basis and enhanced with such features as faculty biographies, course descriptions, and new course offerings. Please note that not all courses listed for each category will be offered every semester or every year.

Area of Focus or Concentration?

Areas of Focus are not academic concentrations. All students who successfully complete a concentration receive a Concentration Certificate at graduation, and it will also be noted on the student's Law School transcript. If Areas of Focus do not quite fit a student's needs, we highly recommend they review Suffolk Law's Concentrations.
