JD Graduation Unit Limitation

In accordance with ABA accreditation standards, JD students entering in Autumn 2009 and thereafter, may not count toward the JD graduation requirement more than thirty one (31) quarter units of the following types of coursework: externships, directed research, directed writing, senior thesis, research track, courses taken outside the Law School, and moot court (Kirkwood competition). The Law Unit Limitation notation in a SLS course description indicates courses that are subject to the 31 quarter units rule.
