Registration and Scheduling

office of academic services

The information found on this site informs students about the various courses offered at Boston College Law School, next year's schedule, and some thoughts to keep in mind when constructing a course of study.

Students should also be aware that certain courses may be prerequisites to taking some states' bar examinations.

Certain jurisdictions also mandate completion of a professional responsibility course (or taking the Multistate Professional Responsibility Examination [M.P.R.E.]) as a prerequisite for admission to practice law.

With the following exceptions, all upper-level courses are electives. Students are required to take a Professional Responsibility class (LL955), a Constitutional Law II class (LL666), a course satisfying the Lawyering Skills requirement (from menu), a course satisfying the Perspectives on Justice and the Law requirement (from menu), and a course that will fulfill the ABA Upper Level Writing Requirement (from menu).

Finally, some jurisdictions limit the amount of "clinical" credits that may be applied toward a law degree. Information about these and other bar admission requirements is available from the Academic Services Office, M308 Stuart.

Please go to the National Conference of Bar Examiner's web site at <> for more information.
