JD candidates who have successfully completed no more than three full-time or four part-time semesters of course work at another law school, who are academically eligible to continue as students in the school last attended, and who otherwise meet the J. Reuben Clark Law School’s high academic and ethical standards, may apply for admission to the J. Reuben Clark Law School with advanced standing. Transfer determinations will be made, under the direction of the Dean, by the Assistant Dean of Admissions with the approval of the Faculty Admissions Committee.
Acceptance of credits earned at another law school is at the discretion of the Associate Dean for Research and Academic Affairs. However, no credits will be accepted for courses taken at another law school unless the grade received is at least the equivalent of 2.2 at the J. Reuben Clark Law School, and there must be no duplication of credits. The maximum amount of transferred credit to be applied toward graduation from the J. Reuben Clark Law School are: i) up to three full-time or 4 part-time semesters of credit successfully completed at an ABA-approved and AALS member school, and ii) up to two full-time or 2.6 part-time semesters of credit successfully completed at an ABA-approved school not a member of AALS. Transfer credits will appear on the student’s BYU Law Progress Report as a pass.
