More About Pass/Fail
You may choose a Law course as your pass/fail option choice only two times during your entire law school career. Visiting Law students are not allowed the pass/fail option choice. To be eligible to use the Pass/Fail Option choice, you must have earned 25 or more Law School credits prior to this semester, and have used less than two Pass/Fail Options during your Law School career.
To choose the Pass/Fail Option for one (or two) of your Fall 2019 courses, go to the following Law School website. The link is https://secure.law.wisc.edu/grades/pf/ After you log-in using your Net ID and Password, the site will show only your current courses for Fall 2019 that are eligible for the Pass/Fail Option. Follow all directions and, for full information on the operation of the Pass/Fail Option, be sure to click on the links for the UW Law Student Handbook, section 9.3 and Law School Rules 2.03 (Pass/Fail Option). Remember, you may choose a Law course as your pass/fail option choice only two times during your entire law school career. (1L courses are not eligible.)
Important: Taking advantage of the Pass/Fail Option may affect your eligibility for Dean's List and for Order of the Coif. See the Student Handbook 9.7.2 and 9.7.4 along with Law School Rule 8.05 Dean’s List and Law School Rule Appendix D for Order of the Coif.
Note: Mandatory pass/fail courses (shown as PF only on our course schedule) are only graded S or U (satisfactory or unsatisfactory). These mandatory pass/fail courses do not count as part of the pass/fail option courses. This is explained in more detail in the Student Handbook section 9.3. and Law School Rules 2.03 (see links above)

http://law.wisc.edu/current/grades-reported.html (Currently Spring 2019 course grade dates are showing.)
