Can prior credits taken at the University of Pennsylvania Law School be counted towards the ML degree?

Two (2) CUs maximum taken in the Master in Law or JD course offerings prior to acceptance can be applied toward the eight (8) CUs required for graduation.

If a student has completed all three (3) ML required core classes prior to applying*,  only two (2) CUs will count toward the total eight (8) CU requirement, leaving six (6) CUs remaining to be be fulfilled.

ML degree candidates must satisfy both ML substantive requirements and ML total CU requirements.

* If an application is submitted during the applicant’s 3rd class in the ML program, that class can be applied toward the degree requirements.
