J.D. students in their second and third year who have been selected as journal staffers, will be automatically registered for a contemporaneous three-credit, year-long, Pass/Fail course in the year in which they were selected (i.e., students selected via the writing competition process will be registered as 2Ls; students selected via Topic Access will be registered as 3Ls). One credit is allocated to each quarter; no partial credit is given in case of withdrawal.
Students may reallocate credits based on actual workload. The supervising faculty must certify that the reallocation matches the actual workload. Students must submit this petition no later than the deadline to adjust enrollments/credits for the corresponding Spring quarter (see http://www.law.uchicago.edu/students/academiccalendar).
NB: Students must carry a minimum nine credits in order to meet the residency requirement.
