Auditing BU Law Courses
A second- or third-year student may audit a BU Law course, with appropriate notation on the BU Law transcript, provided that:

  • The course is not closed;
  • The student obtains the instructor’s written permission to audit; and
  • The instructor provides the School of Law Registrar, at the semester’s end, written verification that the student attended throughout the semester.

Without Academic Standards Committee permission, a student may not change his/her registration status after the add/drop period. Audit forms are available in the School of Law Registrar’s Office on the 4th floor of the Law Tower.
