Summer School Registration and Application
NOTE: Please read this page CAREFULLY! The method for registration differs depending on your status as a student: Lewis & Clark, Visitor, or Auditor. If you are interested in a distance education course, you must also read the section for Distance Education Students.
Lewis & Clark Students
Register via WebAdvisor when registration opens in late January 2019, and then through May 27, 2019. After May 27th all adds and drops must be done through the Registrar’s Office. If you are interested in an externship, please make sure to register for the Externship: Pre-registration class.
A visitor 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 ABA-accredited schools, depending on the rules of the school accepting the credits for transfer. International students should check with their home school as to the specific rules regarding transfer of credits.
Visiting students can register by submitting the Visiting Student Registration Form , a letter of good standing, a copy of their student ID card from the student’s school, official transcript and a $150.00, non-refundable deposit.
Visiting students must supply an official transcript no later than 10 business days prior to the first day of class. The letter of good standing should also state that the credits earned at Lewis & Clark will transfer to the home school, and note any minimum grade requirements imposed by the home school.
Mail the completed application, deposit, letter of good standing, transcript and copy of student ID to:
Lewis & Clark Law School

An auditor 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 Document.
Please read the Auditing Student Policies Document prior to registering for any courses.
To register, auditors must complete and submit the Application for Auditors form
All auditors are subject to the professor’s approval. Auditors will be notified if the class is full or if the professor is not accepting auditing students.
Auditors who wish to receive a certificate of course completion must pass the final exam with a grade of C or better. A student may also audit a course without taking the final exam. See the Auditing Student Policies Form for more details.
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 ABA-accredited schools, depending on the rules of the school accepting the credits for transfer. International 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.
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.
