    • Credits earned in the Bar Preparation Course and Critical Practice Skills I, II, and III, are exempt from this limit;
  • No more than a total of four of the credit hours required for graduation may be in the form of Law Journal, Moot Court, or Independent Study credit; and,
  • No more than six of the credit hours required for graduation may be in the form of externship credit.
