Thank you for your interest in the Summer Legal Institute. To apply to either of the certificate programs, please visit the CNDR page.
To enroll in one of the credit-bearing courses (listed here), please follow the instructions below.
Current UC Hastings students may register for these credit-bearing courses using WebAdvisor. There is no registration fee. See steps 3 and 5 for payment and Financial Aid information.
Non-UC Hastings students who wish to apply for any of the Summer Legal Institute’s credit-bearing courses should follow steps 1-4. Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis until May 7, 2014. After May 7, please call (415) 565-4613 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org to check if there is space in the program. Prospective students are advised to apply early as courses have limited enrollment.
Step 1: Complete the Registration Form. (Application not required for current UCH students.)
Print and complete the Summer Legal Institute Registration Form. There is a $75 registration fee (waived if you register before May 7). Mail the form to the Records Office, UC Hastings College of the Law, 200 McAllister Street, San Francisco, CA 94102 or scan and e-mail the form to email@example.com.
Step 2: Review of Registration Materials
Upon receipt of your registration form, your details will be reviewed and you will be notified via e-mail about your enrollment.
Step 3: Securing Your Spot in the Summer Legal Institute
Admitted students must submit full payment ($1200 times the number of units you have registered for) by the day before your first class begins to secure your enrollment in the Summer Legal Institute. There are two acceptable forms of payment:
Step 4: Current Law School Transcript and Letter of Good Standing
Along with the payment, applicants who are J.D. students currently enrolled in an accredited U.S. law school other than UC Hastings, or foreign law students not admitted to the UC Hastings LL.M.. program must also provide the Summer Legal Institute with proof of good standing and a current transcript. Students admitted to the 2013-14 LL.M. or MSL programs at UC Hastings do not need to complete this step.
Step 5: Financial Aid: Current UC Hastings students who plan to use financial aid to cover the cost of their summer course(s) should apply for aid at least two weeks before the start of the session they register for. Please visit the UC Hastings Financial Aid Office's summer session webpage for further information. Non-UC Hastings students should plan to apply for financial aid through their home law schools at least one month in advance.
