In-class Credit Requirement

Academic Rule 3.1(b) states that no fewer than 64 credit hours (63 for students who matriculated in or before 2012) must be earned through credited exercises requiring attendance in regularly scheduled class sessions at the Law School, at an ABA-accredited law school from which transfer credit is granted under Rule 8.1, or in foreign study in law courses or seminars if approved by the Dean or Director of International Programs pursuant to Rules 8.6, 8.7. 8.71, or 8.72. The Dean shall publish a list of courses with a Law School number at or above the 6000 level that do not satisfy this requirement; students are responsible for consulting the list to ensure that they enroll in the required minimum number of classroom credits.

The list of courses that do NOT meet the in-class requirement is here.
