Grades

The University of Alabama School of Law uses a letter grading system for evaluating classroom performance. Grades range from A+ to F. Receiving credit for a course requires a grade of D-. If a student takes a class graded on a Pass/D/Fail basis, receiving Pass requires work at the level of at least C-. A student must maintain a 2.33 (C+) average to graduate.

In February 2010, the Alabama Law School faculty adopted a new ranking policy. The policy took effect for the Classes of 2011 and 2012 after the Spring 2010 semester. Under the new policy, Alabama Law will provide individual rankings to students in the Top 15% of each class at the end of the Fall and Spring semesters. At the end of the Fall and Spring semester, the Registrar will publish the GPA for the Top 10%, Top 20%, Top 25%, Top 33%, and Top 50% of each class. Students will know where their GPA places them within these bands. Students outside of the Top 15% will not receive individual ranks.
