To be admitted to the
Emphasis in Business & Entrepreneurial Law program, an applicant
must have a cumulative law school grade point average of at least 2.5,
and must have a grade point average of at least 2.8 in all program
courses or prerequisites which the student has taken prior to
application for admission to the program. For this purpose,
prerequisite business courses will also be counted, including Business
Organizations and Federal Income Taxation.
The deadline for
application to the program shall be no later than the beginning of the
second week of classes of the student's sixth semester of law school.
Any student who applies after the beginning of his or her fourth
semester must demonstrate that the program can be completed by the end
of the sixth semester of law school. Appropriate adjustments will be
made to deal with parttime students not on the regular semester
schedule. Exceptions to the deadlines may be made with approval of the
Emphasis Faculty Advisors, by majority vote.
