Spring 2024 First-Year Enrollment Information

Greetings!  Below is a list of the three 1L spring schedules and the nine Legal Research and Writing II sections.

Registration Process

A full-time 1L spring schedule is 15 credits, consisting of:

You may begin to register for your assigned courses on Tuesday, November 14, 2023. You should complete your enrollment by Monday, January 8, 2024. After that date, faculty will begin emailing students important information required for the first week of class and thereafter. You must be enrolled in your courses to receive class-list emails. 

The Law School will NOT entertain individual student requests to change an assigned schedule, as first-year schedules have been carefully balanced to equalize the numbers of students in each.

Please follow the instructions on this website for adding & enrolling in classes by class number via the Course Search & Enroll App. For more information about enrollment and academic records, please visit the Office of the Registrar’s “how-to” website.

You will NOT be able to register until:

  1. your designated enrollment time on Tuesday, November 14;
  2. you’ve completed the "Terms and Conditions Agreement" that the Bursar's Office requires every student to sign each semester before enrolling in courses; and
  3. if applicable, you’ve resolved any holds on your account.

You will need the five-digit “class number” to register for each course listed on your assigned schedule below. You should register for all of your courses on your assigned schedule (unless you intend to be a part-time student) and for the Legal Research and Writing II section to which you have been assigned.

After you register, you can view your course schedule via MyUW.


You can view textbook information via the Course Search & Enroll App. Please note that not all faculty have posted their textbook information yet, so do not be alarmed if you don’t have any textbook information listed at this time. For more information about textbooks, please visit the Office of the Registrar’s website on textbook information.

Initial Assignments

Before classes begin,  many faculty will post on their class Canvas site an initial assignment that they want students to prepare for the first day of class, or email their class lists with their initial assignments, so be sure to check your wisc.edu email regularly.

Academic Calendar & Final Exam Schedule

You’ll find the Law School’s Academic Calendar here. Please note that Law School classes begin on Tuesday, January 16, 2024, which is one week earlier than the rest of campus. There will be required reorientation sessions for all 1L students during the first week of the spring semester (January 17-19). These sessions will be scheduled outside of your regular class times. Final exam dates can be found in the notes column of the Spring 2024 Course Schedule.
