Law-Related Courses under the Old Plan

* Please double check schedule.berkeley.edu to make sure the course is offered for the current semester if you are interested in a particular course. A student may take any three (maximum of 12 units) from this list, and apply them to the 32 upper division units needed to complete the Legal Studies major. All courses must be taken for a letter grade. These courses may not be credited toward the four Areas in the major. This list changes as departments change the course numbers and content. Students are responsible for making sure the courses in which they enroll are still approved by the Legal Studies program. Courses from an EAP program or a four-year institution in this country, may also be used toward the upper-division requirements, a maximum of two courses, totaling no more than 8 units. Pre-approval of these courses from other institutions by the Undergraduate Advisor must be obtained prior to registration or the courses cannot be counted. Please remember that you are limited to three outside courses to fulfill the requirements for upper division work, and again, no more than two courses from other institutions. All courses taken for the major must be taken for a letter grade.
