Online Student Orientation

WCL’s Office of Online Learning (OOL) works with our professors to create online courses that are engaging, organized, and provide students with frequent feedback and opportunities to practice real-world lawyerly skills. Research shows these factors allow an online course to succeed in delivering a quality teaching and learning experience.

Who should take online courses?

While the increased flexibility of online courses may suit the needs of all students, it should be noted that not all students may be suited to online learning. Some students simply may not enjoy the online platform or dealing with technology. But most importantly, online courses require a greater deal of self-discipline and cater to students who have well-developed time-management skills.
