Students who serve as Senior Editors of Critical Analysis of Law: An International & Interdisciplinary Law Review may receive two ungraded credits. Graduate students are graded on the graduate grading scale. To obtain credit, eligible students must be in residence for the year and must commit themselves to their journal responsibilities for the entire year. However, students are permitted to allocate one credit to each term or both credits to either term. No credit will be shown on the interim statement of grades until the program has been completed. No grade will be assigned until the end of the academic year.

The specific requirements that must be satisfied by the Senior Editors of the journal to obtain credit will be determined by the administration, following consultation with the Instructor(s). These requirements could include submission of written critiques of manuscripts and articles. In any event, it will be the decision of the Instructor(s) as to whether or not the requirements for credit have been satisfied.
