Auditors

Auditor Information

Eligible individuals may request permission to audit courses at the Law School.  An eligible applicant will be a graduate of an ABA-accredited law school or an attorney currently licensed to practice law.   Auditors will not take examinations and a grade of AU will appear on the transcript indicating that the individual audited the course for no credit.  However, a grade of W will be assigned if an Auditor discontinues attendance after the deadline to drop a class without a grade of W has passed. Currently enrolled Loyola Law School students may not audit classes.

Acceptance

The decision to accept students seeking to audit a course is based on the seat availability in the course, professor's approval, and proof of law school graduation or license to practice law.

Courses Offered and Enrollment Limits

  • The list of course offerings are on the Office of the Registrar's home page in the Registration and Course Information section
    • Select the semester/term/year desired, then click on the Courses Offered link
    • Auditors may enroll in only one course per term
    • Auditors may NOT undertake a Directed Research or enroll in any co-curricular (e.g., clinics, competition teams), LLM, skills, writing, or first year courses at the law school
    • Currently enrolled Loyola Law School students may not audit classes

Registration as an auditor in any particular class cannot be guaranteed because Loyola Law School students have registration priority. Auditors will be registered on a first-come, first-served basis, after registration for continuing Loyola students, visiting and special students has been completed.
