Policies and Procedures

Law School Catalog

The Law School Catalog is published in January of even-numbered years. The issue contains regulations and degree requirements that apply to students in the School of Law. Regulations are valid only for the period given on the title page. The list of courses offered in the issue is preliminary and is superseded by the Course Schedule, published each semester and summer session.

General Information, published every August, contains current and historical information about the University and regulations that apply to all students during the academic year given on the title page. General Information is meant to be supplemental; each student must be familiar with the regulations given there and with those given in the issue that covers his or her degree program.

The catalog of the University is the document of authority for all students. Any academic unit may issue additional or more specific information that is consistent with approved policy. The information in the catalog supersedes that issued by any other unit if there is a conflict between the two. The University reserves the right to change the requirements given in the catalog at any time.
