ABSTRACT
The article evaluates elective subjects in law schools. It suggests to think about one's interests, to bulk up on substantive law, and to take courses that will help pass the bar exam as well as to take courses in broad areas of the law, and to enroll in courses taught by the best professors. It also presents results of a survey showing trial skills, transactional skills and negotiation skills as the best electives and practice area interest as the main reason for choosing the electives.
