Admission / Certification / Enrollment Preferences


Any student in good standing may apply to be admitted into the Specialization. Interested students should fill out a (non-binding) declaration of intent‚Äč the summer after their first year available through the Registrar.


The Specialization is not a separate degree program, but rather a specialization within UCLA School of Law. A student who completes the Specialization with a B or better in each qualifying course and a B+ in the writing requirement, will receive a transcript notation indicating successful completion of the Specialization.

Course Enrollment Preferences

Students enrolled in the specialization have priority enrollment for Core List courses but not for the courses on the qualifying list. The Registrar will provide pre-enrollment information for each semester.
