A student may earn credits at another law school to be applied toward the JD graduation requirements of MU School of Law, on the following conditions:
- No more than 31 semester credits may be so applied. Grades in courses taken at other law schools are reflected in the transcript. However, those grades do not calculate in the student's grade point average.
- The law school at which the credits are earned must be, at the time of the student's work there, approved by the American Bar Association.
- The Standards Committee must approve, in advance of the student's work, the particular law school and the course of study the student will pursue there. In the case of work done in a Summer session, the approval of the Dean or Associate Dean may be substituted for that of the Standards Committee.
