Levin College of Law

Academic Information

Sections/Classes/Textbooks

The incoming class will be divided into three sections. You will receive e-mail notice by July 15 indicating your section assignment. You will spend your first year of law school with your peers in your section. Getting to know others in your section will be invaluable as you progress through your first year.

First day assignments are updated often as professors provide the needed information. Please keep checking the site to see if your courses have first day assignments. Not all courses have first day assignments though so do not be alarmed if you do not see any or all of your professors listed. You will likely find more information out about this when you meet with your section during the ILSP.

Once you are registered by the Office of Student Affairs, which will be by July 15, you can find your required textbooks by:

1. ONE.UF

  • Go to ONE.UF.
  • Log into ONE.UF using your GatorLink username and password.
  • A list of textbooks based on your class schedule will be displayed.

If you don’t have a GatorLink account yet, you can create an account here. You will need your UFID number.

If you have any trouble please call the UF Computing help desk at (352) 392-HELP(4367).

OR

2. Course Textbooks Requirements Page:

  • Go to the Course Textbooks Requirements Page.
  • Select “Fall Term 2016″
  • Select “Law”
  • Select a “Course Number.” The Fall Term 2016 class schedule with course and section numbers is available on the law school’s Student Affairs pages. Select the appropriate section for the course number previously selected. The list of textbooks for that Course Number will be displayed.

If you have a hold on your record, it is your responsibility to have your hold released by the department that placed the hold. If your hold is removed past the add/drop deadline, you will be subject to a $100 late registration fee.

Registration

After July 15, you may check ONE.UF to make sure you have been registered appropriately for fall 2016 courses. If you are not currently registered due to a hold, clear your hold as soon as possible. If your hold has been cleared, you do not need to contact Student Affairs. We will continually check your hold status and when we see that a hold has been lifted, we will register you for classes. We will do this as quickly as possible.

A note about your courses/schedule:
ONE.UF information is not always applicable/accurate for UF Law (sometimes the times don’t match exactly). UF Law classes usually start on the hour and our first period is scheduled for 8:00 a.m. The correct times/professor names can be found on the UF Law Course Schedules page.

Course Selection

The curriculum for beginning students is prescribed by the College of Law faculty. This curriculum must be completed prior to registration for elective courses, except where Levin College of Law policy otherwise provides. Students may choose elective courses from any area, subject only to prerequisites. It is recommended that students select a variety of courses to ensure broad exposure. The Curriculum Roadmaps can help students with course planning.

For more detailed information on classes, please visit the Course Schedules or Exam Schedules pages.

American Bar Association Residency Requirement

ABA Standard 304 requires a full-time course of study extending over at least three academic years, with a minimum of 10 credits / semester. Students may earn no more than one semester of residency credit by taking two summer sessions of at least five credit hours each on campus. This means in order to graduate, you must complete six semesters with a minimum of 10 credit hours, or five fall / spring semesters with a minimum of 10 credits each and two summer semesters with a minimum of five credits each.

Fees & Payment

All first semester students are automatically registered for 15 credit hours. It is very important to note that the University of Florida is a self-fee assessing university, which means that you will NOT receive a bill for your tuition. You must access and pay your own fees by the stated deadlines unless you have some form of deferment. For more information, visit the University Bursar. If you are receiving financial aid, the fees will be automatically deducted from your aid.
