Legal Innovation & Technology - Enrollment & Requirements

How to Enroll

Enrollment in the Legal Innovation & Technology Concentration is accomplished by filing a Notice of Concentration Enrollment form online with the Office of Academic Services.

Concentration enrollment may occur as soon as a student completes the first year in law school in good standing. Submitting a Notice of Concentration Enrollment form does not obligate you in any way to complete the Concentration; you may change your mind at any time during your studies. Students may also elect to enroll in the LIT Concentration after they have already started or completed some of the LIT courses.

The latest date students may enroll in a Concentration is October 1 for students graduating in January, and February 1 for students graduating in May.

Formal enrollment in the 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 in the area of legal innovation and technology.

Students may also find it useful to join Suffolk’s Legal Innovation & Technology Student Association (LITSA). Contact Dyane O'Leary, LIT Concentration Director, for more information.


Continued enrollment in the Legal Innovation & Technology Concentration is contingent upon the student completing:

  • The three (3) required, core courses, as listed under the Concentration’s Courses section
  • An approved, three (3) credit externship in some area of legal innovation and technology, or an exemption from the externship requirement, as granted by the Concentration Director(s) and/or the Administrative Director of Concentrations
  • At least three (3) Concentration elective courses, as listed in the Concentration’s Courses section
  • At least seventeen (17) required total credits from the approved Concentration and elective courses and the required externship by the time of graduation
  • Obtaining the Concentration Faculty Director's approval of the student's plan for completing the Concentration's writing/project requirement

Upon completion of the required courses, elective courses, the externship, the writing/project requirement and total credit hours required by the Legal Innovation and Technology Concentration, enrolled students must complete and file a Notice of Concentration Completion form online with the Office of Academic Services.

The latest date students may file Concentration Completion forms is November 1 for January graduates, and March 1 for May graduates.
