Please schedule an appointment with WCL Abroad to see if a program of study can be devised for your particular situation.



Grades from abroad will appear on your WCL transcript only as Pass/Fail. Passing grades do not affect your WCL grade point average. However, failing grades do because they will be factored into your grade point average as a zero.

Grades from LUISS  will be reported on your LUISS transcript which you may need to provide to potential employers or to the state board of bar examiners.
