The required core curriculum includes the following eight courses: Civil Procedure; Constitutional Law; Contracts; Criminal Law; Property; Torts; and Legal Analysis, Writing, and Research Skills I and II (Newark) or Legal Analysis, Writing, and Research I and II (Camden). In addition, following completion of the core curriculum, students must successfully complete either Professional Responsibility or Legal Profession, the upper-class writing requirement, and the skills training requirement to graduate.

Aside from these requirements, students have free rein in choosing the content of their legal education and the law school offers hundreds of courses in its rich curriculum. Students may also choose from a variety of pedagogical formats, including traditional lecture courses, seminar courses that emphasize student discussion, experiential learning courses that simulate the practice of law, and legal clinics in which students practice law under the supervision of clinical faculty.
