Registration

The registration process differs depending on whether you are taking the course(s) for a general Certificate of Attendance, continuing legal education (CLE) credit, or academic credit.

Students Applying for Academic Credit

AU WCL JD and LL.M. Students:   No special application is required.  Please enroll through the Registrar's regular course registration process, which opens in Spring, 2019. (Students may register for a maximum of two academic credits per week.)

Visiting JD and LL.M. Students:  Visiting students who wish to enroll in the Summer Institute and receive academic credit must use the Summer Visiting Student Application Form to begin the process,  which will be available in early 2019.

Students who wish to receive academic credit must have a letter of good standing and permission to enroll at the Washington College of Law from their home institution.  (Students may register for a maximum of two academic credits per week)

Practitioners, Health Care or Compliance Professionals, and Scholars Applying for CLE or Certificate of Attendance

The Summer Institute courses are available to practitioners, as well as health care or compliance professionals and scholars.  One or more courses may be taken in any combination.  All courses can be taken for professional development, and upon completion, participants will receive a general Certificate of Participation.  U.S. practitioners can alternatively request continuing legal education (CLE) credit.  WCL is an accredited provider for Virginia, Pennsylvania, and New York.  WCL will seek accreditation for other states as requested.

Online Registration: The online registration form will be available in early 2019. NOTE: a US $65 non-refundable application fee must be submitted with the registration form.
