Summer 2019 Offerings

Continuing students are eligible to register for the following summer offerings:

Summer Continuing Courses (19RSC term)
These courses are identical to those offered in the fall and spring semesters but run on a compressed schedule (8 instead of 15 weeks). Summer Continuing Classes run Monday, June 3 - Thursday, July 25, 2019 with exams running Monday, July 29 - Wednesday, July 31, 2019.

Summer Institute for Technology, Innovation, and Entrepreneurship (19RSI & 19RSC terms)
Learn how to contribute legal expertise to cutting-edge innovators at Seattle University School of Law's Summer Institute for Technology, Innovation, and Entrepreneurship (SITIE).

Students are encouraged to take the Immersion Course: Lawyering for Entrepreneurship and Innovation, offered the last week in May 2019 (19RSI term). After the immersion course, students can choose from four additional courses on related topics, including artificial intelligence, the role of in-house counsel, advising start-ups, and innovation through real estate development. These 2-credit courses will be offered June 3-29, 2019. Students working 20 or more hours per week over the summer may take one of these June courses. Students working fewer than 20 hours per week may take up to two of these June courses.

See the Summer Institute for Technology, Innovation, and Entrepreneurship website for more information.

Criminal Law (19RSE term)
If you deferred Criminal Law during your 1L year you may take the day or evening section of Criminal Law in Summer 2019. Criminal Law runs Monday, June 24 - Thursday, August 1, 2019 with exams running Monday, August 5 - Wednesday, August 7, 2019.

Summer Attendance

Students registering for the May Immersion course (19RSI term) must commit to attending all class sessions. Students planning to travel during the Summer Continuing term (19RSC) should carefully review the course dates and their travel plans. You must attend 80% of the class sessions to receive credit for a course.

Summer Credit Loads

All upper-level JD students and all LLM students may register for up to three May Immersion (19RSI) credits. These credits do not count towards the maximum credits for the Summer Continuing and Summer Entering terms.

During the Summer Continuing (19RSC) and Summer Entering (19RSE) terms, full-time JD students may register for up to 8 credits total and part-time JD students may register for up to 6 credits total (7 with overload permission).

Because the June Summer Institute classes (19RSC) run on a compressed schedule, an additional restriction on credit load applies. Students working 20 or more hours per week may register for only one 19RSC Summer Institute course. Students working fewer than 20 hours per week may register for a maximum of two 19RSC Summer Institute courses.

Students must register for a minimum of 3 credits between the 19RSI, 19RSC and 19RSE terms to be eligible for summer financial aid.

Dropping or Withdrawing from Summer Classes

May Immersion Course
Students who drop the immersion Course on or before Wednesday, May 15, 2019 will receive a full tuition refund. Students who drop the immersion Course between Thursday, May 16 and Tuesday, May 28, 2019 will receive a full tuition refund minus a $200 late-drop fee. No refunds will be issued for immersion course tuition after May 28, 2019 unless a student is unable to attend class because of illness or emergency.
