To earn a Certificate in Business Law, a student must complete the 86 credits required for the Juris Doctor degree and satisfy all JD requirements. Within the coursework required for the JD degree, a student must complete 15 credit hours from the listed business law courses, including two required courses and three electives. All courses are 3 credits unless otherwise indicated. An applicant must earn a minimum GPA of 3.20 in the Certificate courses.
If a student takes more than 15 hours of courses from the approved list, all grades earned in those courses will be factored into the minimum 3.20 GPA requirement for the Certificate. Students may apply for only one Certificate.
Previously taught courses, courses offered in other DePaul Colleges, and new courses and seminars that may be added to the curriculum may qualify for the Certificate with approval.
