Academics

A Practice-Rich Environment

Courses and programs at the Alexander Blewett III School of Law at the University of Montana comprise a foundation of theory integrated with practical experience and are taught by faculty with years of practice based experience. Students actively prepare as attorneys from the start, accomplishing more than sitting through three years of large class lectures.

Practical experiences include drafting contracts, creating corporations, counseling clients, negotiating transactions, preparing and probating wills, trying a case before a jury and arguing an appeal. The third year clinic experience provides the opportunity to pull together the law and skills acquired in the first two years and apply it to live clients with real legal problems.

Opportunities for Growth

Not every law student has the same legal education interests.  Blewett School of Law students have the opportunity to grow personal areas of interest through unique certificate and program options.
