Registration Procedures & Policies
Registration Information & JD Degree Requirements Session
If you were unable to attend the Registration Information & JD Degree Requirements session, please view the presentation which includes condensed information on the registration timeline and detailed JD degree requirements among other useful information.
The Registration Processing page also includes additional details on student resources and the preferencing algorithm. The Academic Handbook provides the official policies on requirements. If you have further questions concerning the registration or preferencing process, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Detailed information regarding the clinical curriculum and associated registration deadlines can be found on the Clinical Registration page.
Please note that clinics and their associated clinical seminars and courses have earlier drop deadlines than regular classes. Students enrolled in a clinic should pay special attention to the clinic’s drop deadline as they plan their schedules. More information about these deadlines can be found on the Clinical Curriculum Chart as well as in each of the clinic’s descriptions in the HLS Course Catalog.

Programs of Study
To guide you in pursuing deepening knowledge and progression as you move through the three years of law school and to create a tool for better coordination and collaboration between faculty members, the faculty has developed “programs of study”. The seven current programs of study offer suggestions about how you can navigate our extensive course offerings with a sense of their relationship to different avenues of study and opportunities to move progressively through more advanced work before graduation. More information about this can be found on the Programs of Study page.
