Spring 2022 First-Year Enrollment Information

Greetings!  Set forth below is a list of the three possible 1L spring schedules and the fourteen Legal Research and Writing II sections. You will receive an email from Jane Heymann (jane.heymann@wisc.edu) with your assigned courses – a full-time 1L spring schedule is 14 credits, consisting of one of the three schedules below (which includes assigned sections of Torts and Property --  4 credits each), a Legal Research & Writing II section (3 credits), and a 1L elective (3 credits). 

You may begin to register for your assigned courses on Wednesday, December 23. You must be enrolled by January 3, 2022, because faculty will be emailing pertinent information that is needed for the first week of the class and thereafter, and you must be enrolled to receive this information via 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 Wednesday, December 23; (2) you’ve completed the "Terms and Conditions Agreement" that the Bursar's Office requires every student to sign; 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, check the Initial Assignments website, where some faculty post an initial assignment that they would like their students to prepare for the first day of class. Alternatively, many faculty will email their class lists with their initial assignments, so be sure to check your wisc.edu email regularly.

Academic Calendar & Final Exam Sche


You’ll find the Law School’s academic calendar here. Final exam dates are available on the Spring 2022 course schedule.

Violence-Prevention Program

All incoming law students must complete the University’s violence-prevention program, “Graduate and Professional Students Preventing and Responding to Sexual and Relationship Violence.” You are strongly encouraged to complete it before classes begin. The program is available now via Canvas. If you completed this in the fall, you are NOT required to complete it again in the spring. 

COVID-19 Updates

Please note that, effective 8/5/2021, masks will be required for all students, faculty, staff, and visitors in campus buildings. Learn more about the University of Wisconsin's COVID-19 response.
