Students seeking to take courses at other law schools, including summer programs at other schools or in foreign countries, must first obtain permission, in writing, from the Office of the Assistant Dean for Student Affairs. A maximum of six units for courses taken at other law schools after matriculation at Whittier will be counted toward graduation requirements. Credit will be granted only for work which receives a passing alpha-numeric grade on the scale of the school where the course is being taken. A student may not receive credit for a course at another law school that is substantially similar to a course the student has taken at Whittier Law School, nor may a student receive credit for a course at Whittier Law School that is substantially similar to a course the student has taken at another law school. Required courses and California Bar courses may not be taken at another law school after matriculation at Whittier Law School. Whether a course taken at another law school may be used to satisfy the requirements of a Whittier Law School certificate program is within the discretion of the Director of the certificate program.
