LL.B. CURRICULUM REQUIREMENTS
The Louis Arthur Grimes School of Law does not require students to major or specialize in any particular field of
study or to complete all the courses offered by the School before graduation as long as the students complete the
minimum number of required mandatory credits and also complete a total of 96 credits hours.
The Law School offers a combination of (i) required courses and (ii) elective courses. The electives provide each
student both choice and flexibility to decide the range and intensity of courses appropriate or desired for a deeper
understanding of some area of the law. Required courses, on the other hand, are by their nature mandatory,
and must be completed by each student before graduation. The following are the characteristics of each of the
the course teaches knowledge, skills or value almost indispensable to the practice of law in Liberia;
the course is one of the courses considered critical or very essential by all nearly all students, lawyers and
judges surveyed relative to the effective practice of law in Liberia; and
the course (1) has been one of the first-year courses taught at the Law School or (2) one of the courses
taught as required or essential courses in many other law schools.
The curriculum of the Law School represents a good thoughtful mix of courses that provide students required
for successful practice of law in Liberia, be it as a litigator, a transactional lawyer a judge or in any respect.
