The Unversity of Connecticut School of Law provides students with the opportunity to specialize their law studies and has established certificate programs to formalize this study. For some of these programs, students must only meet the criteria as outlined in the Student Handbook. Juris Doctor students hoping to specialiize in Intellectual Property or Human Rights are required to make formal application to the program. All students intending to receive a certificate are asked to complete this application as it facilitates the transfer of credit (where applicable) and review of credentials. It is asked that students complete this form in the semester that they begin taking certificate appropriate courses.
Completion of this form does not indicate acceptance in to or completion of the certificate program, nor does it require students to complete the requirements of the program.
