How We Schedule Certain Classes

Students occasionally ask about how we schedule certain classes so the information below explains our approach.

For example, students sometimes ask why Professional Responsibility (PR) isn't offered in Fall 20XX. The answer is that PR is always offered during the day in the Spring semester. We try to schedule all high enrollment classes on a consistent basis so that students can count on the semester in which these classes will be offered during the day. In some years, we also offer sections of those classes in the other "non-promised" semester.

Here's a list of some of the most popular classes and the semester in which they are usually offered. Keep in mind that these are the classes we offer during the day; we have a different schedule as to evening classes (see below):

Fall Semester-Day

Spring Semester-Day

Administrative Law

Business Organizations

Environmental Law

Marital Property Rights

Evidence

Professional Responsibility

Family Law

Secured Financing

Federal Income Tax

Texas Consumer Law

IP Survey

Trusts & Wills

Oil & Gas Law

 

 

In addition, we also have a set schedule for a similar (but somewhat longer) list of classes that we offer in the evenings. Our Schedule of Core Courses Offered in the Evening, which is posted under the Students tab of the UHLC webpage, is primarily for the benefit of our part-time students. They have first priority to register for these classes, though full time students are also permitted to take these classes if there is available space. This schedule remains in effect fully through Spring 2021:

Fall 2019- Evening

Spring 2020 - Evening
