JD Graduation Requirements

*Please note: You may not use the same course to satisfy both the Experiential Education Requirement and the Upper-Level Writing Requirement. Meaning, you may not use a paper written in a course for your Experiential Education Requirement to also satisfy your Upper-Level Writing Requirement.


Reminders:

  • Except when approved by the Dean, students may not earn more than a total of six (6) credits of independent study toward the J.D. degree, and may not earn more than three (3) credits of independent study in any one (1) quarter
  • Students who do not transfer credits from non-ABA programs may earn up to twelve (12) credits that do not qualify for in-class instructional minutes for ABA purposes. (e.g., Independent Study, Moot Court and Legal Competitions, ALE, etc.)
    • Students who transfer credits from non-ABA programs may earn up to nine (9) credits that do not qualify for in-class instructional minutes for ABA purposes.
