Registration Services

First year students, in-coming visiting and transfer students, and LL.M. and exchange students registering for the first time will be registered for classes through the Law School Registrar’s Office.

2L and 3L students, as well as LL.M. and exchange students who are currently enrolled, register for fall and spring semester courses through Lottery Registration, an automated process that randomly assigns students to available classes based on prioritized lottery bids. 3L students have priority in the lottery course-assignment process. Lottery registration for fall semester generally takes place in mid-April; registration for spring semester generally takes place in mid-November. Summer school course and registration information is made available in March. Detailed registration information is provided to students via University email and on-line in advance of the registration period. Students are expected to regularly check their University email for registration information.
