Extra classes while in law school?
« on: April 29, 2005, 01:49:06 PM »
Howdy all.

I was curious: does anyone know how to take classes outside the law school while currently attending the law school, like language classes? When I was debating where to go, people at IU told me it was possible but weren't too specific.

Thanks in advance for the help.

i met with dean long last week, and he had mentioned something about being able to take something like 6 credits in such classes. he specifically mentioned language classes, because i had mentioned an interest in international law. so i do believe this is an option, but i don't remember or have all the specifics.

Alright. Thanks. That does help a bit, especially since it's coming from Dean Long. Even then, that's only like two classes, isn't it? That probably won't help much with learning a language. Hmmm.

Language minors at IU are only like 12-15 credits, so 6 credits/year would be almost a minor.  Don't know though if he means 6 credits total, or 6 credits per year.
