Auditing a Law School Course

Non-Degree Seeking Students

A person will be allowed to audit a class if the class is not filled during the pre-registration process and if the professor gives that person permission to audit the class by signing the Audit Application. No student of a United States law school, including Lewis & Clark Law School, may audit a class without pre-enrollment permission from the Associate Dean of Student Affairs Libby Davis.

In order to audit a class, a person must have a bachelor’s degree, except in the case of legal assistants. Legal assistants who do not have a bachelor’s degree will be allowed to audit classes if they provide a letter from their employer confirming that they work as legal assistants.

No basic first-year course may be audited.

Auditors are not eligible to receive Federal financial aid.

Auditors do not receive a transcript and cannot apply or transfer these credits to Lewis & Clark Law School.

A Certificate of Completion is given only to those auditors who (1) register to audit for certification and (2) complete all course work with a passing grade.
