The School of Law complies with the University Policy on Nondiscrimination, Sexual Harassment, Student Records and Privacy, an excerpt of which follows:
Nondiscrimination. The University of California, in accordance with applicable Federal and State law and University policy, does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, religion, sex, gender identity, pregnancy (including childbirth and related medical conditions), physical or mental disability, age, medical condition (cancer-related or genetic characteristics), ancestry, marital status, citizenship, sexual orientation, or service in the uniformed services (includes membership, application for membership, performance of service, application for service, or obligation for service in the uniformed services). The University also prohibits sexual harassment. This nondiscrimination policy covers admission, access, and treatment in University programs and activities.
Inquiries regarding the University's student-related nondiscrimination policies may be directed to the Director, Student Judicial Affairs (530) 752-1128 or the UC Davis Compliance Director (ADA and Title IX Officer) (530) 752-9466. Students are encouraged to seek assistance as soon as possible, as time limits apply to some grievance processes.

Policies Regarding the Transfer of Credit Earned at Other Institutions of Higher Education
Students who wish to take classes at another law school approved by the American Bar Association (“ABA”) toward satisfaction of their J.D. requirements must obtain prior permission from the Law School’s Senior Assistant Dean for Student Affairs. Students must be in their 2nd or 3rd year of law study with a law grade point average of 2.0 or above. The Dean may set a maximum number of credits for the courses.
Students must earn grades of C or better in each course taken at an A.B.A. accredited law school in order to apply the units toward the U. C. Davis J.D. degree. Grades earned in courses at the other schools are not computed in the student’s U.C. Davis grade point average. Only units are applied toward the required 88 units for graduation from U.C. Davis School of Law. No more than 31 units from other law schools will be applied towards the U.C. Davis J.D. degree. Units earned at non-ABA approved law schools or at educational institutions other than the University of California will not be applied toward the U.C. Davis J.D. Degree.
