In addition to traditional core classes, Case Western Law's curriculum features the CaseArc lawyering skills program, a set of writing and researching classes that spread across all three years. Seven concentrations are also available to JD students, including one in law, technology and the arts, and two in areas of public law. For LLMs, Case Western offers certification in five areas, such as public international law and heath law.
Case Western Law's reputation with employers is strongest in the Midwest, though Case Western has recently made inroads into big East Coast firms. The school is located about 15 minutes away from downtown Cleveland, a city that students laud for its affordable cost of living. At the week's end, most students head downtown or participate in the school's weekly organized happy hour.
