The curriculum committee determines the courses for the upcoming academic year, including the next summer’s classes. The committee reviews proposals for new courses and reviews enrollments to see what courses need additional sections or should be offered less often. The committee also takes up specific projects from time to time such as reviewing the first year curriculum, establishing summer externships, and providing guidance for the law school’s various Legal clinics(examples are the Animal law Clinic, Small Business Clinic, and the Lewis & Clark legal Clinic. The curriculum committee’s decisions go to the full faculty as recommendations to be voted upon by the faculty. The committee meets throughout the year, usually twice a month.
