Degree Requirements

Each applicant to the School of Law must have earned a baccalaureate degree from an accredited college or university prior to registration.

The School of Law does not prescribe any particular pre-legal course of study; nearly all undergraduate majors are represented in the student body.

In addition to transcripts submitted through the Law School Data Assembly Service (LSDAS) for the application process, the Office of Admissions must receive an official transcript showing degree conferral sent directly by the degree-granting institution prior to matriculation.

Admission to the school is contingent upon completion of the baccalaureate degree.
