Criteria for cum laude??

Postby BeerMaker » Mon May 14, 2012 7:11 am

So I can't seem to find this information anywhere else. What criteria is there for making cum laude? That is the lowest distinction as far as graduating with honors. What percentage of the class do you need to be to make it? I'm fairly certain that I know how it works and undergrad, but not in law school.

Varies by school (for both undergrad and law)

Google "nalp law school." (The info provided can be hit or miss, in terms if how recent it is.)

Google the school and "Latin honors" or "graduation requirements."
