Peter A Allard School of Law

First Year Program

First-year students at the Allard School of Law benefit from a wide-range of support services and programming.  Each first-year student is placed into one of four small groups - CURTIS, GEE, PROUD or SCOW - and takes all their classes with their small group classmates. 

First-year students are placed into their small groups and registered into their courses by Admissions staff.
