Transfer processes are guided by overall University at Buffalo policies on transfer credit.
For the major, there may be students who graduate from a community college program that touches on some aspects of law (e.g., Paralegal, Legal Administration). We will evaluate coursework of all students transferring to UB with coursework in these areas to identify all coursework that would meet any Law major course requirements.
There are no prerequisite courses required for admission to the Law BA program.
Electives in the major (30 credits):
A. Intermediate Law Courses (select 3 courses, totaling 9 credits)
B. Advanced Law Seminars (select 2 courses, totaling 6 credits)

D. Problems and Issues (select 1 course, totaling 3 credits at the 300-level or above)
E. Systems and Contexts (select 1 course, totaling 3 credits at the 300-level or above)
