Grading and Credit

Grading: The grading system will be the same as that regularly used at the University of Georgia School of Law.

Class Attendance: Standard 304(d) of the ABA Standards for Approval of Law Schools requires regular and punctual class attendance as a means of fulfilling residency and class hour requirements. Regular and punctual class attendance is an integral part of the learning process. In compliance with the foregoing standard, it is Law School policy that students must attend classes regularly. A student should not incur during a semester a number of absences in excess of twice the number of times a particular course is scheduled to meet per week. An instructor may, but is not required to, establish his or her own more demanding attendance policy at the beginning of a particular course. Any such policy shall be announced and enforced by the instructor.

Credit: Each of the four courses will culminate in a 90-minute, in-class exam. Participants who successfully complete the program are eligible to receive 4 ABA-approved hours of academic credit. Participants are responsible for obtaining approval to transfer credit and information about the possibility of accelerated graduation from their own law schools.
