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; 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 105 KB);
  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) (all checks made out to Lewis & Clark Law School);
  4. If you are registering for one of our online classes you will need to submit additional information. Please see ‘Distance Education Students’ below for more information.

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 those will need to be arranged by the auditor with their state bar association. Please read the Lewis & Clark Law School Audit Policies prior to registration.

To register for an animal law class, auditors will need to submit the following to Lindsay Kadish, lkadish@lclark.edu.

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 distance education 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 (pdf) 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 JD 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 JD degree.
