Please note

  • Seminars, practice simulations, and clinics have waitlists. Classes listed under the "Upper Class" category on the class schedule do NOT have waitlists.
  • Students can add themselves to the bottom of a waitlist if a seminar or practice simulation is closed and a waitlist position is available.
  • Students can drop themselves from a waitlist with the exception of a clinic waitlist. To drop from or add to a clinic waitlist, email clinic-applications@umich.edu. Include a statement of interest and attach a resume if you are adding to a clinic waitlist.
  • Dual-degree students must always enroll in law classes under their law career.
  • If you do not have a law enrollment appointment, call the Law School’s Office of Student Records (734.763.6499). Or, email lawrecords@umich.edu. Be sure to include your name and UMID number.
  • Law School students are not permitted to officially audit law classes.
  • Law students may not select “Override Time Conflict” when enrolling in classes in Wolverine Access, per the Academic Regulations.
  • Law students are permitted to take a maximum of 15 credits per term. If you have a compelling need to exceed 15-credits, submit a Credit Under/Overload request.
  • Students need permission to take less than 10 credits. Submit a Credit  Under/Overload request to take fewer than 10 credits in a term.
  • Law students are unable to enroll themselves directly in a class with variable credits such as 900 Research. 
  • Do not use the browser’s back button in Wolverine Access because it may prevent you from saving changes or logging out securely.
  • Wolverine Access will automatically end your session or “time out” if you do not perform a transaction within an allotted time.
  • Students who are not “officially enrolled” BEFORE the first day of classes for a term will be subject to a late registration fee of $50.00, which increases by $25.00 on the first of every month during the term, and must have permission from the Office of Student Life.

  • Joining a Waitlist 

    If a class is closed and has a waitlist available, turn on the "add to waitlist" checkbox that appears on the Enrollment Preferences page when adding the class to your Backpack.

     If the class is already in your Backpack, return to the Class Enrollment Preferences page (click on class section link to open) to turn on the waitlist option. Select the class in your Backpack and complete the "1-2-3" on-screen steps to register (i.e., placed on the waitlist if a position is available).

Class Permission to Enroll

A Class Permission (electronic override) from the Law School’s Office of Student Records is required in order to enroll in a closed seminar or practice simulation with a waitlist. The Office of Student Records will contact waitlisted students by email as seats become available.

  • Non-“Prof Pick” Classes

    Beginning on the first day of classes for the term — during the Waitlist Drop/Add period — and to the extent that students can be reached earlier, the Office of Student Records will review the waitlists for non-“prof pick” seminars and practice simulations and offer an available seat to the first student on the waitlist. A Class Permission (electronic override) will be entered into Wolverine Access and a time-sensitive email sent to the student.

  • “Prof Pick” Classes

    “Prof pick” seminars and practice simulations are identified in the term class schedule by footnote #9. During the Drop/Add period, in order to obtain a seat in a “prof pick” class, students must add their names to the waitlist in Wolverine Access; then send an email to the professor stating that that they have placed their names on the waitlist and are submitting a statement of interest for consideration. If/when a seat is available in a “prof pick” seminar or practice simulation, the professor will select a student from any position on the waitlist, and notify the Office of Student Records. A Class Permission (electronic override) is entered into Wolverine Access and a time-sensitive email is sent to the selected student.

    Class Permissions work in the background once the “Register for Class” button is clicked and allow the student to enroll. If the student fails to add the class by the deadline found in the email, the enrollment opportunity will be LOST and the seat will be offered to another student.
