Explanation of Grading System

Under the Law School's current grading system, which was adopted in 2005, most law school courses are graded utilizing letter grades ranging from A+ to F.  Clinical courses are graded on a four-cell grading system of S+, S, S-, and U.   Legal writing courses are graded using letter grades on the same basis as other courses.  Law reviews and moot court programs will show on the transcript as "S."  Click on the links below for  detailed information about the grading system and to create an unofficial transcript.
