While at UCD, DePaul law students take five of the regular courses offered by UCD faculty for twelve semester hours of credit. Among the UCD law courses from which students can choose are:
  • Comparative Law
  • Conflict of Laws (i.e., Private International Law)
  • Copyright and Associated Rights
  • Criminology
  • Environmental Law
  • Evidence
  • International Protection of Human Rights
  • International Trade Law
  • Irish Constitutional Law
  • Jurisprudence
  • Law of the European Community
  • Public International Law
  • Trademarks & Patents

Because Ireland is an active supporter of the European Community, all of these courses are taught from a European law perspective. This gives the DePaul law students both an international and a comparative perspective of these subjects.

DePaul law students are required to complete the same examinations as UCD students in their courses. At the end of the academic year, a report on each DePaul law student and their final grades are sent to DePaul College of Law. DePaul College of Law will make the final determination whether to grant credit for the courses taken at UCD.​
