Drop/Add

First-year courses and all other required courses may not be dropped. Second- or third-year courses other than externships and clinical courses may be added or dropped at the option of the student (subject to limitations on class size and other limitations announced by the instructor) during the first five days of classes of the semester; thereafter such courses may be added or dropped only with the consent of the instructor. Under no circumstances may such a course be added after the tenth day of classes of the semester or dropped after the first regularly scheduled time for taking the final examination in that course. (Non-exam courses must be dropped before exams begin.) Independent Research projects or Tutorials must be approved by the Law Faculty's Independent Research Committee no later than the tenth day of class of the semester in which the project is to be completed. Externship and clinical courses may be dropped under extraordinary circumstances only and only with the consent of the Associate Dean for Academic Affairs.
