Transcripts/Grade Reports

Unofficial Law School Transcripts can be prepared and provided by the Law School Registrar. Official Law School Transcripts can only be provided by the University of Georgia Registrar. Official Transcripts can be requested either through Athena or at http://www.reg.uga.edu/transcripts.

For 1Ls

First-year fall semester grades are received only in Criminal Law and Civil Procedure.  The fall exam scores for other first-year courses are a percentage of the final grades that students will receive at the end of the spring semester.  As a result, complete Law School Grade Reports are not available for first-year students until after spring semester grades are submitted.
 
In order to assist employers in evaluating first-year students for summer employment, the following template has been prepared by the Career Development Office for students to use in reporting numeric scores received in courses other than Criminal Law and Civil Procedure.

General Guidelines:

  • You are not permitted to estimate letter grades or your overall rank within the first-year class.  You may only provide the precise information that faculty members give you concerning your numeric scores in each course.
  • Any explanation of your numeric scores must be in the context of your section, not the entire first-year class.
  • Consistent with your obligations under the Law School’s Honor Code Constitution, you must be truthful and accurate in all that you report.
  • If you have any questions, please contact CDO, the Associate Dean for Academic Affairs, or the Law School Registrar.
