Campbell Law School


Transfer students

A student from another ABA-approved law school may be admitted to advanced standing as a candidate for a Campbell Law degree. A transfer student must complete two-thirds (2/3) of the course work required for the Juris Doctor degree at Campbell Law school. Credit for work done at other law schools is given at the discretion of the Dean, and must have been completed with at least a grade of "C" or its equivalent.

Students seeking to transfer must have completed most of the following first-year classes before they will be allowed to transfer: Civil Procedure, Contracts, Criminal Law, Property, Torts, and Legal Research and Writing.

In addition to the Campbell Law application, transfer students are required to provide a $50 application fee, a Credential Assembly Service (CAS) report, a letter of good standing from your current law school, your most recent transcript showing completion of the required first-year courses, and law school class rank. 

Law school transcript, letter of good standing/class rank may be sent directly to:

Campbell Law Admissions

Tuition is by semester, NOT by credit hour. A minimum of 10 credit hours per semester is required, even by transfer and visiting students.  The Campbell FLEX program is only available to entering 1L students who intend to complete their entire J.D. program at Campbell Law.

All components of the transfer application must be received on or before July 1, 2016 for those wishing to apply for Fall 2016.

Visiting students

With the approval of the admissions committee, it is possible for students from other law schools to matriculate at Campbell Law for up to one year as visiting students. Visiting students must have the permission of their home law school and be in good academic standing. They will receive their law degrees from their home law school and will not be eligible for a Campbell Law School degree.

Visiting applicants must complete an application to Campbell Law School. In addition, a $50 application fee is required along with a Credential Assembly Service (CAS) report, a letter of good standing from your current law school, your most recent transcript showing completion of required courses, and law school class rank.

Transfer of Law Credits

 
Transfer of law credits earned elsewhere by a current Campbell law student (typically, but not limited to, credits earned by a Campbell law student who is participating in a summer foreign program hosted by another law school).
 
Credits must be awarded by another ABA-accredited law school.  Students should contact either the Registrar or the Associate Dean for Academic Affairs for any letter of “good standing” requested by the host law school.
 
A student  cannot receive credit towards his or her Campbell JD degree for a course involving significant overlap with a course already taken (or to be taken) for credit at Campbell Law  School.
 
No more than six aggregate credits from the other law school(s) will transfer to a student's Campbell JD transcript.
 
Courses taken at another law school do not satisfy any specific Campbell JD requirements (e.g., particular course requirements, or planning/jurisprudence/RWE/track requirements), other than counting toward Campbell Law School's 90-credit graduation requirement to earn the JD degree.
 
A student must obtain pre-approval from Campbell Law School's externship director if any of the course credits are in the nature of externship coursework.
 
Grades for eligible credits are posted to the Campbell JD transcript as descriptive (sometimes referred to as “pass/fail”), rather than numerical.  A student must earn the equivalent of at least a straight “C” (not a C- or lower) in the course to receive credit posted to the Campbell JD transcript.  The host law school must provide a written statement to this effect, before Campbell will post any transfer credits to the JD transcript.  A student is responsible for timely obtaining an official transcript from the host school and then timely delivering it to the Registrar for the posting of course credits to the student's Campbell JD transcript.
 
A student should direct inquiries concerning financial aid to the law school's financial aid officer.
 

Dual Degree Program

 
Transfer of credits earned by a student in a dual degree program.
 
Campbell Law School has agreed to count against its 90-credits graduation requirement the following credits from its dual degree programs.  The student must earn a 3.0 (or "B" equivalent) in the course in order for the credits to transfer to the JD transcript.  A student is responsible for timely obtaining an official transcript from the host institution and then timely delivering it to the Registrar for the posting of course credits to the student's Campbell JD transcript.

"Visiting" Students

Transfer of credits earned by a Campbell law student who is a "visiting" student at another ABA-accredited law school.

A Campbell law student who seeks to be a "visiting" student at another ABA-accredited law school for an academic semester (or academic year) must timely inform the Associate Dean for Academic Affairs of this desire well in advance of the desired visit.  Decisions regarding which courses the student must (or may) take at the host law school, and the conditions under which credits for those courses will transfer to the Campbell JD transcript, are made on a case-by-case basis.
