2015 Summer Course Offerings

Visiting Students

A visiting student is a student who needs a transcript of the work in order to receive credit at another educational institution. Visiting students should check with their home schools to ensure the credits are transferable. Lewis & Clark is an ABA-accredited law school, and the summer courses are eligible for transfer back to law schools or international schools, depending on the rules of the school accepting the credits for transfer. All students should check with their home school as to the specific rules regarding transfer of credits.

To register, visiting students will need to submit the following to Brooke Mill, bmill@lclark.edu.

  1. Visiting Student Registration Form (pdf)
  2. Letter of Good Standing from your home law school. (The letter does not have to accompany the registration form but must be received before you will be allowed to matriculate.)
  3. $150 non-refundable deposit (This deposit will be credited toward your tuition, but will not be refunded if you drop the class.)

Visiting students should verify that the summer program class credits will transfer to their home institution. Students should also apply for financial aid at their home institutions as soon as possible.

Auditing Students

An auditing student is someone who is not transferring the course credit back to another educational institution. Auditors may receive continuing education credits, however this must be arranged by the auditor. No Lewis & Clark transcript is generated for auditors, only a certificate of completion, if the auditor meets the conditions stated in the Auditing Student Policies Form.

All participants interested in auditing a Lewis & Clark course must read the Lewis & Clark Law School Audit Policies prior to registration.

To register, auditors will need to submit the following to Lindsay Kadish, lkadish@lclark.edu.

  1. Animal Law Registration Form for Auditors (pdf)
  2. Full tuition payment (see Registrar’s webpage for up-to-date tuition information)

Auditors may choose from two options: to take the class without receiving a certificate, or to take the class and receive a certificate of completion. If an auditor chooses to receive a certificate of completion s/he must pass the final exam. Lewis & Clark law school does not keep any official record of auditors who attend our classes.

Excellent CLE opportunity!

Distance Education Students

A distance education student is a student who is registered in one of Lewis & Clark’s distance education courses. These courses are open to Lewis & Clark law students, as well as visiting students and auditing students. Visiting students must check with their home schools to ensure the credits are transferable. Lewis & Clark is an ABA-accredited law school, and the credits from the distance education courses may be eligible for transfer back to law schools, depending on the rules of the school accepting the credits for transfer. All students should check with their home school as to the specific rules regarding transfer of credits. Lewis & Clark law students should review the school’s policy on distance education credits.

Visiting students can register by submitting the Visiting Student Registration Form with a $150.00, non-refundable deposit to the address on the registration form. Visiting students must supply a letter of good standing, an official transcript, and a copy of their student ID card from the student’s school no later than 10 business days prior to the first day of class. The letter should also state that the student has completed instruction equivalent to 28 credit hours toward the J.D. degree, that the distance education credits earned at Lewis & Clark will transfer to the home school, and note any minimum grade requirements imposed by the home school.

The address to send your registration form, $150 deposit, letter of good standing, official transcript, and photo copy of student ID can be found on the registration form.

Note: per the ABA Standard 306-f, a student may not enroll in any distance education course before completing 28 credit hours toward his/her J.D. degree.

Students outside of Oregon, California, New York, Texas, Maryland, or Washington who wish to register for the Distance Learning (online) courses at Lewis & Clark must contact Lindsay Kadish (lkadish@lclark.edu)  prior to registration in order to confirm that the distance course can be offered in the state they reside in.
