The Law Registrar Office collects and disseminates student and academic information through processes that ensure the integrity and security of all academic records in compliance with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA). Each student record contains cumulative class history, grade history, and degrees conferred. Law students may inspect their records in the Law Registrar Office upon submission of identification.
Privacy and Release of Information
Students must notify the Law Registrar Office in writing if they do not want basic information about themselves to be verified when it is requested (typically by colleges or employers). This information may include dates of attendance, enrollment status (full-time and half-time), degrees earned and dates conferred, and the major field of study.
If you need to request a verification letter or any document from the Law Registrar Office, please complete the Verification Request Form (PDF) by including specific details. This form should be sent as an attachment to Law-Registrar@luc.edu or brought to the Law Registrar Office, Corboy Law Center, Room 1203.

- Rule 711 of the Illinois Supreme Court allows law students to engage in the limited practice of law, under the supervision of a licensed attorney, subject to several conditions.
- Students who have successfully completed a minimum of 43.0 credit hours at the School of Law may apply to the Administrative Office of the Illinois Courts for a 711 license. The Registrar's Office will sign a student's application form once it verifies that the student has in fact successfully completed the required 43.0 credit hours. Students need not have the signature of a supervisor before submitting the form to the Registrar for certification, although this signature is necessary before the student can submit the form to the Administrative Office of the Illinois Courts.
