Credit Hours

A “credit hour” at Berkeley Law is an amount of work that reasonably approximates three to four hours of work per week for 15 weeks, including (a) classroom time, (b) time spent preparing for class, (c) time spent studying for, and taking, final exams, (d) time spent researching, writing, and revising papers and other written work, and (e) time spent preparing for and completing any other final project, presentation, or performance. For the purposes of these calculations, 50 minutes of classroom instruction counts as one hour, and the 15 weeks includes the exam period.
