+ Law Program Requirements
In addition to completing the requirements for admission (see this page), all students are required to register at the times announced by the Faculty of Law. All new students will be informed of the procedures for registration. Course registration for first year is handled by the Faculty administration. First-year students are required to attend the opening assembly in September when they will receive their course schedules and other information.
All Letters of Admission or Authorizations to Reregister that are not used to register in the term or session to which they apply have no further validity.
Registration in any course is not confirmed until:
The Faculty reserves the right to cancel the registration in a course of any student who fails to attend that course within seven calendar days of the commencement of the term, or of any student who is not able to demonstrate that all course prerequisites have been met.
A student who for medical or compassionate reasons is unable to attend a course during the first seven calendar days of the term may apply to the Associate Dean Academic and Student Relations within that time to confirm registration in that course, and the Associate Dean may confirm the registration.
Students are responsible for ensuring that:
Students may attend courses in which they are not registered, only with the express permission of the Associate Dean. Students may not register in a course for which they have previously received credit without the consent of the Associate Dean Academic and Student Relations.
A letter mailed to a student’s address as currently on record in the Associate Dean’s Office of the Faculty of Law or on the student’s record in "My page" will be deemed adequate notification to the student for all matters concerning the University.
Students planning to undertake studies in both terms of the Winter Session must register by September for all courses they intend to take, including single-term courses beginning in January.
Courses may not be changed after the designated add/drop period at the start of each term without permission of the Associate Dean Academic and Student Relations. Failure to drop a course which a student does not intend to take will result in a failing grade.
Please refer to the information under fee reductions for dropped courses.
Any student who after registration decides to drop all courses is withdrawing from the University and must notify the Associate Deans Office of the Faculty of Law in writing, which will in turn notify Records Services.
Upon successful completion of first year, a student may, with the permission of the Associate Dean Academic and Student Relations, stop out of the JD program for a single period not exceeding two academic years, or on more than one occasion not exceeding a cumulative total of two years.
When a student stops out part way through an academic year or session, the regulations that are normally applicable to an academic year, including regulations for achieving standing in a year, will be applied to a program consisting of the term completed prior to stopping out and the next term that the student completed after re-enrolment.
When a student stops out after the completion of an academic year and the student re-enrolls in the second term of Winter Session, regulations that are normally applicable to an academic year, including regulations for achieving standing in a year, will be applied to a program consisting of the next two academic terms completed by the student.
In no case may a student retain partial credit for a full-year course that has not been fully completed.
