During a student's second or third year, a student must satisfy the professional skills requirement. The requirement is fulfilled by successfully completing a course on the list of professional skills courses.
Up to six hours in courses in other divisions of Creighton University or other fully accredited institutions may be taken for elective credit to satisfy the law requirement of 60 hours beyond the first year. This option is available to second- and third-year students who receive advanced approval from the Curriculum Committee pursuant to Academic Rule 6.10. Courses must be related to the study of law and must not be available in the Law School curriculum. These hours would be counted as non-classroom hours. In arranging an elective schedule, the student should keep in mind that a total of 60 hours beyond the first year must be earned during the three-year program.
Only seven of the hours needed for graduation may be earned in non-classroom courses. See Academic Rule 6.8. Course that are considered non-classroom are so designated in the course description or are those that do not meet regularly in the classroom.
Full-time status is 10 or more hours of course work in a semester. Taking fewer than 10 or more than 17 hours of course work in a semester requires permission from the Associate Dean. See Academic Rule 6.2.
