Independent Study FAQs.


A student may earn credit toward the J.D. degree for independent study pursuant to the following rules:

(1) A full-time law faculty member must supervise the independent study.

(2) The student must prepare a written proposal for his or her independent study which must be approved in writing by the supervising faculty member. The study must culminate in a written paper, exercise or examination, a description of which shall be included in the written proposal. After the supervising faculty member approves the proposal, a copy should be filed with the Office of the Dean.

(3) The student and the supervising faculty member shall agree on the number of credit hours to be earned for the independent study. The independent study required in order for the student to earn the agreed upon number of credit hours shall be substantially equivalent to the requirements of a course offering of the same number of credit hours.
