NCA, Audit, and Courses for Credit

International or civil law degrees

We will consider applicants with an international law degree or a civil law degree from Quebec for admission to the faculty as ordinary first-year applicants for the full 3-year program; however, our policy does not admit students to take one or more courses for credit to satisfy the requirements of the National Committee on Accreditation (NCA).

Auditing

Permission will only be granted to individuals who hold a law degree and are currently practicing law in the province of Alberta. Space restrictions limit the number of students allowed to audit law courses.

You must email the Student Services office at law@ucalgary.ca to initiate the application/approval process. All admission, registration and fee deadlines which apply to regular students must be met. Tuition and fees are paid on a per-course basis.

Auditors may not participate in assignments, examinations or parts of courses such as laboratories. They may participate in class discussion with the instructor's consent. If the instructor wishes the student to participate in activities other than class discussions, permission must be obtained from the Associate Dean (Academic).

Courses for credit

Permission will only be granted to UCalgary students registered in the Faculty of Graduate Studies, persons holding a law degree from an accredited Canadian or American law school, and students admitted to UCalgary Law through an international student exchange program.

You must email the Student Services office at law@ucalgary.ca to initiate the application/approval process. Approval is required before any person not enrolled in the JD or LLM programs will be permitted to take a course for credit in the Faculty of Law.

UCalgary students registered in the Faculty of Graduate Studies must show that the proposed JD course is related to their studies, and the student must have their supervisor’s consent.

Persons holding a law degree from an accredited Canadian or American law school will not be permitted to enrol in compulsory courses at the Faculty of Law absent exceptional circumstances.
