Students who would like to apply to the UCDC Law Program should first determine whether they satisfy basic eligibility requirements set by their home campus by reading the home school addendum attached to the application.  While there are not binding course prerequisites for participation in the program, some externship sites do have specific course requirements.  Applicants should make themselves aware of these requirements prior to applying to the Law Program.
