Class Registration Procedures, Spring 2015
Registration for spring semester will open at 7:00 am on Monday, Nov. 24, for third-year students. It will open at 7:00 am on Tuesday, Nov. 25, for second-year students. First year students will be registered automatically by the Office of Budget and Records sometime in December.
Registration for most courses is conducted through MyNiu. Make sure that you know how to use the MyNiu registration tools. Wait lists are available for most courses. Self-registration is not available for clinics, externships, directed research, or co-curricular competition credits. To enroll in any of those courses, you must contact the instructor.
Part-time students who have not yet completed all first-year courses must do so by the end of their fourth semester. If you are a part-time student and still need to take one or more first-year courses, you must see Dean Coles to get registered in those courses because you cannot register yourself for first-year courses in MyNiu. However, part-time students must register for their upper-level courses in MyNiu.
If you have questions concerning the schedule, course selection, or the registration process, please feel free to contact me.
At the links above you will find the following:

2. Exam schedule for spring semester
3. List of courses indicating which are bar courses and which may not be offered in academic year 2015-2016
For second year students particularly interested in any of the courses that may not be offered in 2015-2016, this may be your only opportunity to take these courses.
4. Descriptions of new courses (including a new for-credit Bar Fundamentals Workshop) and seminars
Second year students should note that the upper-division writing requirement is required to be satisfied during the 4th or 5th semesters. Accordingly, unless you plan to satisfy the requirement through law review or a directed research project, you should carefully consider the seminars to be offered this spring.
