Enrollment & Requirements
How to Enroll
Enrollment in the International Law Concentration is accomplished by filing a Notice of Enrollment form.
Concentration enrollment may occur as soon as a student completes the first year in law school in good standing.
The latest date students may enroll in a Concentration is October 1st for students graduating in January, and Feb. 1 for students graduating in May.
Formal enrollment in the International Law Concentration is not complete until the Notice of Enrollment form is filed. Once enrolled in the Concentration, students will be invited to participate in a variety of programs and special events of interest to international law practitioners.
Continued enrollment in the International Law Concentration is contingent upon the student:
- Completing the two required core courses;
- Completing such other Concentration skills and elective credits so that it is possible to complete the required 18 credits in approved International Law Concentration courses by the time the student graduates;
- Periodically reviewing the student's progress in attaining the requisite grade point averages with one of the Concentration Faculty Director(s) and/or the Assistant Dean for Academic Services.
- Obtaining the Concentration Faculty Directors' approval of the student's plan for completing the Concentration's writing requirement.
Upon completion of the required courses, elective courses, the writing requirement and total credit hours required by the International Law Concentration, students must complete and file a Notice of Concentration Completion form with the Office of Academic Services.
The latest date students may file Concentration Completion forms is Nov. 1 for January graduates, and March 1 for May graduates.
