Assuming one can write a convincing petition to count a non-law course toward their JD
Since the course must be directly relevant to your legal training, I am doubtful someone could pull this off for more than one course. Also, there may be a requirement (such a passing a preliminary exam) to enroll in a grad-level engineering course...which would make this idea not worth the hassle.

This seems REALLY overcomplicated and speculative. Also your transcript would look really weird unless you have some good reason to take engineering classes (in which case it would look better not to have Cs in them).

Why would you do this with engineering--take B school classes, which would be easier and seem less random/questionable to future employers.

Why not just get good law grades

Only 2L/3Ls can cross-register. Honors only matter for 1L. Over half the class gets Stone in 2L/3L. I guess if you desperately want the RBG award and are really good at math, this might work, but most people who get Kent in 1L won't really have a massive problem replicating that performance in 2L/3L if they tried. Who is this plan targeted to?

I love angleshooting as much as the next person, but this seems insane?

The 2L / 3L honors might matter in exceedingly marginal ways or in narrow circumstances. If you're on the cusp and could do a semester which is a little lighter and think you'll lock it in, it might be worth it, but I don't think it's worth a meaningful amount of scheming. I'd put it this way, I think it's worth it if you're just shifting around what you would take anyways but not missing out on anything you want to take.

Only law credits are used to calculate honors. Please chill out
