All certifications require a signed request form from the student. Unfortunately, telephone requests cannot be accepted. Completed request forms can be submitted to our office (Room 343) or faxed to 202-319-4004.
Please allow 5-7 business days to process all letters and certifications. Our office is unable to provide same day or emergency service, so please plan accordingly.
Request letters of good standing, degree verifications, DMV, and more.

If a student is scheduled for more than one classroom exam in less than 24 hours (the 24-hour period is computed from the starting time for each exam), his or her exam(s) will be rescheduled so that the exams will be at least 24 hours apart. Take-home examinations and papers are excluded from rescheduling considerations. Reasons of personal convenience, including matters relating to employment, do not warrant rescheduling examinations. Students do not have the option to request the rescheduled exam dates.
Rescheduled exam request forms for the Spring 2017 semester are due in Suite 343, or emailed to Theresa Nixon at firstname.lastname@example.org, by March 15, 2017. If you are unable to meet this deadline, please do not worry. We will still work with you to reschedule your exams. Nevertheless, we highly appreciate receiving this form on-time.
All approved topics require a signed Directed Research form from the faculty advisor.
New Course Approval Form (faculty use only)
This form should be used by faculty to request the Curriculum Committee's consideration of a new course or the amendment to a currently existing course.
This form should be used by all students who have completed a portfolio for upper-level writing requirement credit. Please have the course faculty member sign this document and then the completed form should be submitted to the Registrar's Office (Room 343).
Students may be allowed to take courses for credit at another law school with the advance permission from the Assistant Dean for Student Affairs and Dean of Students.
In addition to our own popular program in Cracow and our new program in Rome, many accredited American law schools conduct summer programs in overseas locations. Please click here for more information.
This form should be used by students to request a waiver from one of the bar staple (menu course) requirements. Please be very specific as to the reason for the request and why you are not able to meet the staple course requirements given your proposed future schedules. General waiver requests will not be granted.
This form should be used by students to notify the Assistant Dean for Academic Services/Registrar of a request for an academic leave or an intention to withdraw from school prior to graduation. Withdrawals can be in the form of a temporary term withdrawal (i.e. returning next term) or a permanent withdrawal from the Law School. A student will be given an academic leave when his or her request is for good cause and he or she plans to re-enroll within a reasonable time.
