Build Your Character

Successful lawyers use a wide array of skills – from analytical thinking to networking to writing. Nebraska Law’s core curriculum is designed to teach you many of these skills through doctrinal, clinical, and other skills-focused courses. The Build Your Character (BYC) program is designed to help you continue to build these skills through your participation in various opportunities available outside the classroom. Whether you choose to take advantage of our externship program, lead a student organization, participate in a competition, or attend a lecture, these opportunities complement what is taught in the classroom and allow you to enhance your strengths and build the skills you need to become a complete lawyer. Use these BYC tags to help you identify potential growth areas and to set goals; then, look for these tags when considering whether to take advantage of an opportunity presented.
