Under the Standards of Legal Education set forth by the American Bar Association, the Law School may allow the enrollment of non-law graduate degree candidates, provided that their enrollment does not adversely affect the quality of the course or the law school program. The Law School further prohibits non-law students from taking courses that are part of the required first-year curriculum.
Therefore, pursuant to the ABA Standards, the only non-law students who may enroll in courses at the Law School are:
Non-law students wishing to enroll in a law course must obtain a letter/memo from their department chair or advisor that states that the credits will count towards their graduate degree or certificate. The registrar will accept emails from advisors/department chairs in lieu of actual memos: Please have this email sent to Piyada Nonzee at email@example.com. Additional forms may be required by the Law School.
Finally, the American Bar Association absolutely prohibits non-law students who subsequently enter a JD program from transferring any previously earned law school credits to the student's JD degree.
