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.
