Credit Hour Policy

Under the Law School’s Credit Hour Policy, one credit is awarded for an amount of work that reasonably approximates: (1) in an exam course, no less than fifteen “hours” of classroom or direct faculty instruction (i.e., 12.5 hours calculated at fifty minutes per hour), and 30 hours of out-of-class student work, for a total time of 42.5 hours per credit; or (2) at least an equivalent amount of work for all other credit-bearing academic activities, including writing seminars, clinics, externship courses, practicums, guided research, journals, moot court, and trial teams.
