Permission to audit a Law class gives an auditor the opportunity to sit through a Law School class, but auditors may not hand in papers or participate in evaluations of the instructor or class. An auditor does not receive Law School or University credit for the class, nor is the class recorded on a transcript. Instructors may deny any request to audit a class.
Students enrolled at the University of Chicago may audit law classes with permission of the instructor if there is seat availability in the class. Students are required to obtain the signature of the instructor. Students are not permitted to audit more than one Law class per quarter. Final approval will be based on both approval from the instructor and room availability.
Auditors with instructor approval should attend the first day of class, but will not receive final notification of approval or denial from the Registrar’s Office until the second week of classes.
Individuals not currently enrolled at the University of Chicago are prohibited from auditing law classes unless they have been invited by the instructor and have submitted a completed auditing petition.
Please note that all petitions to audit Law School classes are subject to review by the Deputy Dean and/or the Dean of Students.
By submitting this form I acknowledge that as an auditor I will not be registered for the class nor will receive any grade or credit. I also understand that I may not register for the same class or similar class(es) in the future.
