Course Registration for First-Year Law Students

Rather than registering themselves, entering first-year students are assigned to classes/sections by the Law School.  Admitted students will receive instructions on how to access their preliminary class schedules via CheckMarq in July.

This page will be updated with more information throughout the summer.
