General Practice Curricular Track
The general practice track prepares students to serve community clients, handling cases that may involve criminal, personal injury, bankruptcy, divorce, estate planning and real estate law.
The general practice is useful for the attorney who does not limit his or her law practice to one particular area of law. Such a practice typically encompasses a broad range of legal areas that may include criminal law, accident and personal injury law, bankruptcy, business law, family law, estate planning, insurance law, litigation, and real estate.
General practitioners are often found in smaller communities where business may be limited, so a lawyer must practice in multiple areas in order to serve local demand and thrive. And while lawyers are not required to specialize, many new attorneys begin their career by opening a general practice until they settle into a particular area of specialization.
