The cooperative learning environment at NIU College of Law brings students a greater degree of personalized attention in a diverse and vibrant collegiate community. By the second year, students have developed supportive, working relationships with faculty and their fellow students. During their second and third years, students take full advantage of the breadth and depth of courses offered at NIU College of Law.
While a certain number of courses are still required, students virtually design their own second and third year curricula by blending practical skills training with theory-based learning. Students round out their academic experience by participating in a wide range of scholarly, social, athletic, and community service activities.
