LAW Courses for Skills Credit
Students earn skills credit upon successfully completing any of the LAW courses listed below. All courses approved for experiential credits (except for L765 Lawyering II) confer skills credit. For all other LAW courses approved for skills credit, only the sections taught during the listed semesters and by the listed professors confer skills credit once the professor confirms that the student successfully completed the course's skills component. If no semester or professor is designated for a listed course, all sections of the course confer skills credit. Each course earns a single, general skills credit unless otherwise noted.*
*Note: Successful completion of L817 Mediation & Arbitration or L895 Divorce & Family Mediation satisfies required skills competency (2) Negotiation. One semester of any L897 Clinic Seminar earns 3 skills credits and satisfies required skills competencies (1) Client Interviewing; (3) Cultural competence and Interpersonal Skills and (4) Law Office Management/Professionalism. A second semester of clinic earns an additional 3 skills credits (2 general skills credits and one credit satisfying skills competency requirement SKR: Negotiation).
