For all registration periods:

You can see what courses are still open during add/drop by using the UT Registrar’s Course Schedule:

Choose “Find Courses Now”. Under 1. Field of study and level you’ll have to select “LAW” for field and “graduate-division” and “upper-division” for level. All our courses will then be shown. They’ll all say “restricted” because they’re restricted to law students. If a course still has available seats it’ll say “open” and if it has a waitlist it will say “waitlisted”. You can also search by professor or unique (to check on the status of those short weekend courses), but that first way is a great option if you just want to browse to see what’s available. You will still have to use the official Law School course catalog to read detailed information about the class.

For information about automatic waitlists, see our policies and procedures on that here:

You can always make an appointment with an academic advisor to discuss your options. Do that here: Calendly – Texas Law SAO.
