At Cleveland-Marshall, they can leave with a master's degree if they change their minds about practicing law.

What's being said

  • not available

    The first year of law school does not make one a master of anything in a practical sense; its primary purpose is to prepare a student for the eventual bar exam, where they will revisit questions on the Restatement of Torts, Third. Contract and Property Law are necessary prerequisites to Wills & Trusts. This "degree" may have some value to future paralegals, but in a business setting, no one is sitting in a meeting discussing the present application of Carlill v Carbolic Smoke Ball Company, [1892] EWCA Civ 1, [1893] 1 QB 256.
