Information for UVA Undergraduate/Graduate Students Wishing to Take a Law School Course

Students who attend the University of Virginia can take Law School courses with permission from the instructor, and by filling out this form and returning it to the Law School's Student Records Office. On the Law School's form, identify the course and obtain the authorizing signature of the law professor teaching the course. This form should be submitted in accordance with the deadlines noted below. Please note that the Law School does not extend this opportunity for the required 1L courses (i.e. Civil Procedure, Constitutional Law, Contracts, Criminal Law, Legal Research and Writing, Property, and Torts).

Students should attend the class to keep up with the course material, but enrollment cannot be finalized typically until after the Law School's add/drop deadline passes.  If seats are available after the add/drop period ends for law students, the Law School's Student Records Office will complete a course enrollment form authorizing you to take the course. We then let you know that the form is ready for pick-up (in Slaughter Hall Room 107) so you can take it to your "home" department registrar to enroll you in the course (the Undergraduate School of Arts & Sciences, in most cases for undergrads, and the Graduate School of Arts & Sciences in most cases for graduate students) because it is ultimately a decision by your "home" school to permit the enrollment once the Law School authorizes a seat in the course.
