Registration Instructions

Law School Students

Class Bidding: At certain times throughout the year, Law School students bid on their ideal selection of classes through the Class Bidding system. This process provides students with the best chance to be assigned to the classes that they desire most.

MLaw Schedule: Students can create and compare potential schedules on MLaw Schedule as they plan their next term. This tool will help access information such as: professor bios, past and present course offerings, grade distributions, and class demand in the bidding process.

Drop/Add Period: After the Class Bidding period is over and initial class assignments are complete, students have the opportunity to adjust their enrollment by dropping unwanted classes and/or adding other available classes.

Research Credit: Law School students may engage in research projects and receive Law School credit. Foreign nationals may also enroll in Law Practicum Research as Curricular Practical Training (CPT).

External Credit: Law School students are able to take non-law classes or classes outside of the University of Michigan and receive credit for them.

Non-Law Graduate Students

Class Enrollment: Non-law graduate students may enroll in a limited selection of classes at the Law School.
