Developed by Harvard Law School, Zero-L is an online course designed to ensure all incoming students, whatever their backgrounds and previous areas of study, start with foundational legal knowledge that enables them to thrive in law school. We provide this course to our incoming students.
Weather permitting, the Introductory Program commences with an optional outdoor ice cream social on Tuesday evening. This is always a relaxed and enjoyable way for you to meet others in your class and mingle with faculty and staff.
The Intro Program continues through the end of the day on Friday. These days will be filled with activities and workshops that will begin the process of building community and demystifying law school.
Recommended dress for the Intro Program is business casual. Among other things, photos for the Student “Lookbook” and photos for other law school communications will be taken. We also welcome distinguished leaders from the Montana legal and educational community to join us during the Intro Program.
In 2021, we added a service project component to the Intro Program in conjunction with our partners at the YWCA of Missoula.
