The Socratic method is used predominantly in first year courses. While it is also used in larger elective classes (such as Evidence and Jurisdiction), many students opt for seminar-like courses in their second and third year. These seminars have a smaller number of students and allow for more theoretical and creative class discussions.
The available courses range widely. Because there is such a wide array of courses, students often complain that they don't have enough time to take all of the courses they're interested in. For this reason, many students have trouble deciding whether they have the time to study abroad. While appealing, it limits the number of interesting courses one can fit into their short three years.
By far, the best and possibly most popular courses are the clinical programs that range from Human Trafficking to Immigration, Juvenile Justice and General Litigation.
Quality of Life
As a first-year student, I recommend living in the law quad. Aside from being close to classes and the dining hall, it's critical to be surrounded by a network of fellow first year law students. This way, it is easier to integrate yourself into the law school community, create study groups, and feel part of group of scholars.
The facilities are perfectly adequate. Like most dorms, laundry is difficult (all washers and dryers are stored in one location which requires students to walk across the quad with their laundry). The location is central, a stones throw away from the undergrad facilities, restaurants, coffee houses, etc. With that being said, law students are very territorial and tend not to stray far from the law quad.
The first year of law school, while difficult, was also somehow the most fun. I attribute this in part to the student body and in part to the community.
