I hope your classes are going well. If you are still considering adding a writing credit or a Directed Research to your fall 2013 schedule, please note that the deadline to do so is Monday, September 30, 2013 at 4:45 pm. As ABRA is no longer available to add or drop fall 2013 classes, students must obtain an add/drop form from the Office of Academic Services (Furman 400).
Writing Credit for a Seminar or Colloquium:
This writing credit can be used to satisfy the J.D. Substantial Writing Requirement. NOTE: If you selected the Substantial Writing Priority in ABRA and won the seminar, this did not automatically register you for the writing credit; you must add the writing credit to your schedule.
For detailed information about the Substantial Writing Requirement and a list of classes with a writing credit component, please see: http://www.law.nyu.edu/academicservices/degreerequirements/jdprogram/writingrequirements.
To add a Directed Research, students must present to their program office a two-page proposal which has been signed by the supervising professor. (Please note that adjunct professors can only supervise Directed Research with the approval of the Vice Dean.) Please check the web site for more detailed information regarding the procedures to register for Directed Research: http://www.law.nyu.edu/recordsandregistration/nonclassroomcredits/directedresearch
The staff in Academic Services will be happy to answer any questions you may have about this process.
