General Information

Grading System

The Law School’s grading system has four grades:

H Honors (representing excellent work)
P Pass (representing good or satisfactory work)
R Restricted credit (representing work that is plainly unsatisfactory)
F Fail (representing work that does not show adequate mastery of the material)

Some classes, primarily skills classes such as Negotiation, have a slightly different grading scheme to reflect the mandatory nature of the passing grade, i.e., that Honors is not a possible grade. In those courses, the grades will be as follows:

MP Mandatory Pass (representing good or satisfactory work)
R Restricted credit (representing work that is plainly unsatisfactory)
F Fail (representing work that does not show adequate mastery of the material)
