Audit Law School Classes

Are there electives you wish you had taken that never fit into your class schedule? Are there new classes offered at UST School of Law that were not available when you were a student? St. Thomas Law alumni can audit law school elective courses, free of charge, on a space available basis with faculty permission. Classes that are core requirements for LL.M. programs are not available for audit. For more information, please contact Jill Akervik, registrar, at jsakervik@stthomas.edu or at (651) 962-4928.

Bar Examination Assistance

The School of Law is committed to a 100 percent bar exam pass rate for all its graduates. Both before and after graduation, the Office of Academic Achievement will provide one-to-one support for bar preparation. Bar preparation assistance is available to each graduate at any time during his or her professional career, and for any bar examination in the United States. For more information, please contact Scott Swanson, Director of Academic Achievement by e-mail or by telephone at (651) 962-4857.

Continuing Legal Education

Each year, the School of Law hosts forums at which national and local scholars, teachers, practitioners and judges present on wide variety of topics including the practice of law, the administration of justice, an exploration of our mission, and the professions. Many of these presentations qualify for continuing legal education credits, and many are offered at a significantly reduced rate or at no cost.  Alumni are always invited and are always welcome to attend. Information about CLEs, as well as other events, is located on the events calendar and is included in the monthly e-news sent to alumni.

Faculty Connections

Both new and veteran lawyers often seek the assistance and counsel of lawyers who excel in a specific legal niche. Each School of Law faculty member is committed to sharing knowledge related to his or her specialty with law school graduates. If you have a question or inquiry related to a specific area of the law, consider calling on an expert within the St. Thomas Law community. For a complete list of faculty and specialty areas, visit the Faculty Directory.
