Interpreting Pa.B.A.R. 205

The Board narrowly interprets Rule 205 when determining courses that qualify to meet “Law Study Required” in 205(b). The course of study is expected to be that generally taught in introductory courses and cover basic concepts. Courses in Constitutional Law, Contracts, Criminal Law, Real Property, and Legal Research and Writing should cover the subjects as they traditionally have been taught in a first-year JD curriculum.
