Registration Procedures for Law School Students
To register for a Booth course, you must follow the process based on the Law School's procedures in addition to the following Booth procedures:
Registration for Booth courses begins week 2 of the quarter, but students are encouraged to attend week 1 of the class(es) in which they are attempting to enroll, though attendance does not guarantee registration.
Review the Pre-Registration Information and Post-Registration Policies and Deadlines for complete guidelines on taking Booth courses. Students are responsible for meeting all deadlines and following the procedures related to course registration, and dropping/withdrawing.
Review course schedules and descriptions via the Course Search tool. Note any strict prerequisites, Pass/Fail grading restrictions, or Auditing restrictions for the course(s). If there are "strict" prerequisites and you feel you have the background necessary to fulfill the prereq but you have not taken the prereq courses at Booth, you'll need to email the faculty and request a prereq waiver and email the waiver to Linnea Battles prior to registration. Please review the "strict" prereq policy for additional information.
Review the Seat Availability report for closed course sections. If a course is closed, students may not register for it unless a seat becomes available at the time their registration is processed.
