Regular Decision Admissions Information

For students who apply through our Regular Decision process, admissions decisions are made on a rolling basis by the Admissions Committee when sufficient applications are complete in order to start the review process. The Admissions Committee continues to evaluate application files until late spring. Every applicant will receive a decision letter (accept, wait list, deny) within four (4) to six (6) weeks of being notified that the applicant's file is complete. A waiting list is established to fill any openings that may occur during the spring and summer.

LLM for International Lawyers

The College of Law is offering a program of study on the US legal system to foreign-trained practicing attorneys and law school graduates. The LLM program is a one-year program which provides a substantive introduction into the US legal process, while allowing students to tailor their studies to particular areas of law.
