Academic Regulations

Schulich Law students are responsible for being familiar with our Academic Regulations.

The Studies Committee oversees the implementation of the School of Law academic regulations in specific cases. The Associate Dean is the Chair of the Studies Committee.

The Academic Year consists of one session of two terms* covering a period of about thirty weeks. Please consult the faculty for final confirmation of start and end dates.

*There is a third term in the summer for Dalhousie Legal Aid Clinic students only, the dates of which are May 1 - August 31 inclusive.

Every full-time student must pass every subject, either by regular, special, or supplemental examination before advancing to the next year of study.
