Policies & Courses

The program is open to students who have completed all first-year day courses and who are in good academic standing at an ABA-accredited law school. (Hofstra students must have at least a 2.2 GPA.)

All students will take two courses, one for 2 credits and the other for 1 credit, with no prerequisites. There will also be required field trips to local legal institutions. Both courses will focus on international and comparative law.

Hofstra Law grading standards apply, and Hofstra transcripts will be distributed. Acceptance of credits earned during the program is subject to the determination of your home school.

Grades are based on an examination in each course. The grading policy in the program is the same as in the regular course of study at Hofstra Law. The grade scale is: A, A-, B+, B, B-, C+, C, C-, D+, D and F.

If you attend a law school other than Hofstra, you must submit a letter from your law school verifying that you meet the above requirements.

The Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna is accessible to students with disabilities; however, some aspects of the program may not be accessible to people with certain disabilities.
