Qualified students may register to take one or more courses listed in the Mental Disability Law Studies Curriculum without becoming candidates for the M.A. or Certificate program. Nonmatriculating students are expected to attend class regularly, participate fully, and fulfill all course requirements, including taking any examinations.
Nonmatriculating students may opt to be graded on a letter grade basis or a pass-fail basis, unless they are taking the course for credit at another law school, undergraduate school, or graduate program; in that case, students must adhere to their home school grading policy. In order for nonmatriculating students, who are not taking the course for credit at another institution, to successfully complete the course, students must achieve a score of 70 percent or better on all assignments and participate in all mandatory sessions.
Nonmatriculating students who have successfully completed previous course work after spring 2009, either in the Online Mental Disability Law Program, as a visiting student at New York Law School, or at one of the program’s partnership schools, may apply a maximum of nine credits or three courses towards the M.A. or Certificate.
