  • Applicants must be registered for Law School Data Assembly Service (LSDAS)
  • Applicants must have taken the Law School Admissions Test (LSAT)
  • The candidate’s undergraduate grade point average and LSAT scores will be strong factors in determining admission to the law school.

We seek a diverse class of students from different racial and ethnic backgrounds, from different parts of the country and world, and from different socioeconomic backgrounds.

Decisions are made on a rolling basis and the size of our classes is limited to ensure the quality of the educational experience. For this reason, students are encouraged to apply early.
