After the first year of foundation law courses, the school has no formal concentration program. The absence of upper-level requirements gives students the freedom to take courses in a variety of specialty law areas. These course subjects are mostly in the usual topics--tax law and health law, for example--but Kentucky Law also offers a slew of classes in equine law.
In 2007, the school revised its grade curve, raising it from a B- median to a B, after complaints from students that their job prospects were being affected. The career development office has programs in different major cities--Atlanta, Nashville and Washington, D.C.--but the majority of graduate stick around the state. According to Vault's surveys, students take advantage of the resources of the large state university and a medium-sized city, both academically and socially.
