Admissions information for students interested in transferring to Baylor Law or attending as a visiting student is available here.
BAYLOR LAW STUDENTS INTERESTED IN STUDYING ABROAD:
Baylor Law students in good standing can participate in study abroad programs that the American Bar Association approves. Before attending such a program, students must receive pre-approval of courses by Associate Dean Wilson. The student must provide a course description for each course they wish to receive credit for and the number of minutes spent in each class. The total minutes spent in each class will determine the number of credit hours granted. The Baylor Law transcript records Transfer work as pass/fail credit.
TRANSFER CREDIT FROM ANOTHER LAW SCHOOL:
For students transferring to Baylor Law from another ABA-accredited law school, up to thirty semester hours (the equivalent of 45 quarter hours) of transfer credit toward graduation may be allowed at the time of a student's admission to Baylor as a transfer student. Students receive a maximum of 1.5 quarter hours for each semester hour giving transfer students up to 45 quarter hours of credit. Practice Court 1, 2, 3, and Professional Responsibility must be taken at Baylor Law.
For Baylor law students who attend another law school as a visiting student, transfer hours from the other school shall be allowed as part of the maximum pass-fail hours permitted as described in the Student Catalog, subject to prior approval by the Associate Dean. Pass-fail credit will not be granted for coursework substantially similar to coursework done by the student at Baylor Law. Practice Court 1, 2, 3, and Professional Responsibility must be taken at Baylor Law.
Transfer hours are recorded on a student's transcript on a pass/fail basis. Grades earned on transfer hours are not included in calculating a student's Baylor Law School grade point average.
