  • All students must successfully complete all first year courses before taking the second year courses.
  • Students must submit an IRP topic for review and approval before registering and taking IRP 1. This should be submitted 6 months before the IRP 1 begins.
  • Students must complete 12 credits of electives. Students may choose to complete a concentration in which specific courses should be selected or take a mixture of electives from those offered.
  • Not all electives are offered each term; all electives need at least 3 students to run.
  • The IRP Part 1 and the IRP Part 2 must be taken during back to back terms. Students may not take IRP Part 1, then a term of electives then the IRP Part 2.

Below are the concentrations for Employment Law. Students must complete 12 credits of electives to complete their degree. Students may choose from 12 credits of electives they are interested in or may choose to take combinations below to earn a concentration. Students MAY NOT take concentrations on other disciplines. For example an Education Law student MAY NOT take a Health Law concentration. It is the students responsibility to plan accordingly and check registration to make sure that all concentration classes AND electives are taken and successfully completed BEFORE registration for the IRP part 2 class. We strongly recommend that students complete all electives before part 1 of the IRP.
