Prior to matriculation, applicants for admission to the Graduate Program in Estate Planning and Elder Law must hold a J.D. or an equivalent degree from a law school accredited by the American Bar Association.
If space is available, the Director, upon request, may allow a limited number of non-degree students to participate in the program. Normally, such non-degree students will already be engaged in an estate planning practice and may desire to enroll in certain courses to enhance their knowledge in a specific area. These non-matriculated students will be allowed to register for no more than one or two courses with the permission of the Director of the Program. They may be considered for admission to the degree program based on their performance in courses which they have taken.
