About SLS Navigator
SLSNavigator grew from a desire to help you construct your own curriculum, to get the most from your experience at Stanford Law School, and to enable you to better prepare for your professional life after law school. SLSNavigator enables you to find courses offered at the law school and across the entire university, to learn about journals, blogs, and other relevant resources in your areas of interest, and to connect via SLSCONNECT with alumni who work day-to-day in those areas. If you know what kind of law you want to practice, SLSNavigator can identify specific courses that can move you toward that goal. If you’re not sure of your direction, you can use SLSNavigator to explore and expand your options by suggesting foundational courses in a number of areas. It draws from extensive interviews with faculty, alumni, and other practitioners about the substantive knowledge and skills needed to practice various types of law. The courses recommended here, however, are not a new set of requirements. They are not meant to suggest that you must commit to a particular practice area while in law school or that you must follow a particular program of coursework. Think of it this way: you can approach your time in law school in different ways. You can select courses from a variety of fields and focus on developing skills that will be useful in any practice area. You can explore a few practice areas more deeply to test your level of interest in one or more. Or, once you have a commitment to a particular career goal, you can chart your courses to go deep into your field of choice. SLSNavigator is the tool to use no matter which of these approaches seems best for you. Start now with ADVICE FROM LARRY KRAMER, SLS DEAN 2004 - 2012 or jump right in.
