Submit your 2019-20 application for admission
The College of Law seeks to select students to become part of the entering class who are capable of undertaking the rigorous study of law, who come from ethnically and socially diverse backgrounds, and who are committed to the highest ethical standards as citizens and future lawyers.
The College of Law has a rolling admissions policy, admitting students until the incoming class is full. Our application will remain online until Aug. 1 of every year, and we accept scores from the June LSAT. Students are encouraged to apply as early as possible to avail themselves of the greatest consideration for admission as well as scholarship and grant awards. Applying online is free.
