The law school's students bring a variety of backgrounds and experiences to their legal education. We admit only those with the potential to do exemplary law school work. As a result, the academic failure rate is extremely low.
The Law School Admissions Committee, composed of students and faculty, considers many factors in evaluating candidates such as a candidateâ??s college, major program, experience since college, and the effects of an interrupted education. Writing ability is a critical factor. The committee studies the candidateâ??s community involvement, background, references, work ability, and leadership qualities and may carefully consider a file a second or even third time before making a final decision. Applicants are notified on a rolling basis as the committee goes through its process.
