The first-year JD curriculum at USC includes the standard fare, as well as the course on the interaction of law and society called Law, Language, and Ethics. In general, classes tend to focus more on the theory of law than on bar exam material and the nuts-and-bolts of lawyering. USC doesn't rank its students and will only notify them if they are in the top 10 percent of their class. This move serves to ease the competitive atmosphere somewhat.
