09. Is it possible to obtain advanced standing for coursework undertaken prior to enrolment in the JD programme?

Under exceptional circumstances, the Faculty of Law will grant advanced standing. However, the standard for advanced standing is very high, and the Faculty must be satisfied that the course(s) undertaken in another programme meets the rigorous standard of the JD programme. The maximum number of advanced standing credits is 12. Under no circumstances will a student be allowed to graduate from the JD programme with fewer than 132 credits worth of coursework undertaken in the programme.
