Registration: Upper Level Full-time and Part-time Students

Welcome to SPRING 2016 ON-LINE Registration for Upper Level Full-Time and Evening students at the David A. Clarke School of Law.

Please read carefully the following instructions and gather all required documents before proceeding to myUDC.




Enrollment in clinic is mandatory for all full and part-time students pursuant to the model schedule, unless you have received permission from Dean Jonathan Smith to defer.  Clinic is offered for matriculating UDC-DCSL students ONLY.


Evening clinic sections are reserved for eligible evening students ONLY, unless permission is otherwise granted.



All students who are enrolled in clinic must apply for Special Admission to the Bar of the D.C. Superior Court of Appeals, regardless of whether the clinic requires court appearances.  The application must be completed by all enrolled clinic students and submitted to Jordana Arias.

Spring 2016 clinic students will be enrolled into clinic by the Registrar’s Office before on-line registration closes, based on the lottery assignments, which will be sent to students by email.  Please adhere to the following:


* Do not drop clinic from your schedule.  Permission from Dean Morin is required to defer.

* Do not swap clinics without approval.  Both “swappers” must notify Dean Smith and obtain permission from the clinical professors of both clinics.
