For example, at CLS we consider our LPW (legal writing equivalent) to be "ungraded" since it's not included in calculation of GPA/class honors (even though we don't release an official class rank) and it is therefore distinct from the "Graded" curriculum on an A/A-/B+/B scale.
Other schools with "High Pass/Pass/Fail" structures may still be "graded" in the sense that the class has non-zero weight on class rank/some impact on latin honors - those would be more appropriate metrics for incoming 0L's.
tl;dr, UVA, CLS, ect (and possibly other schools with letter grades in common law curriculum) do not have Graded LRW.
Updated to reflect this. Thanks.
