Non-Law Student Data Form

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:

  1. classified graduate students at the University of Hawai'i at Mānoa, or
  2. students accepted into graduate certificate programs at the University of Hawai'i at Mānoa.

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 pnonzee@hawaii.edu.  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.

Non-law students wishing to enroll in a law course must obtain a letter/memo from their department chair or adviser that states that the credits will count towards their graduate degree or certificate. The registrar will accept emails from advisers/department chairs in lieu of actual memos: Please have this email sent to Piyada A. Nonzee at pnonzee@hawaii.edu.
