At the University of Georgia School of Law, first-year fall semester grades are received only in Criminal Law and Civil Procedure. The fall exams determine only a portion of the final grades in other first-year foundation courses which are conferred following spring semester. Therefore complete Law School Grade Reports are not available until after spring semester grades are finalized.
In order to assist employers in evaluating first-year students for summer employment, a chart will be provided by the Office of Legal Career Services for students to report raw scores received in courses other than Criminal Law and Civil Procedure.
Following the receipt of your first-year grades, you will no longer use the first-semester grade chart. If you have any questions, be sure to consult LCS, the Associate Dean for Academic Affairs, the Associate Dean for Administration, or the Law School Registrar.
Only submit a grade report when requested by the employer.
For most employment purposes, when you are asked to submit a "transcript" or "grade report," the unofficial PDF generated through MyGaLaw will be perfectly acceptable. If you are asked for an "official" transcript, contact the Law School Registrar to order one (Hirsch Hall, Room 109 or (706) 542-5123).
When applying to jobs in Symplicity, you must upload an unofficial transcript available in MyGaLaw. There are instructions in MyGaLaw for creating a PDF (or Word document) of your grades. ***Be sure to include the explanatory language on MyGaLaw provided by the Law School Registrar.
Alumni should contact the Law School Registrar to order copies of their Official Law School Grade Report.
Contact the Law School Registrar for a Law School Grade Report. Never use a transcript from the University Registrar or printed from OASIS when reporting law school grades. For students who went to UGA for some other degree, make sure to send a Law School Grade Report from the Law School Registrar along with the University transcript.
