FlexJD Applications Process
To be eligible for admission, a candidate must have a bachelor’s degree from an accredited college or university by the time of law school matriculation in August.
Students must have strong academic credentials and the ability to transfer their classroom learning into practical legal skills. While no specific field of undergraduate study or prior work experience is required, the mastery of oral and written communication skills, a capacity for independent research and the ability to analyze problems and to exercise critical judgment are essential to successful legal study.
In making a determination with respect to each application, we consider academic criteria, including undergraduate grades and LSAT score, as well as other accomplishments, work experience, significant community involvement, the personal statement, recommendations from individuals who know the candidate well, and any other relevant information.
To apply, submit the following:
- Application by May 1
- Personal statement
- Current CAS report that includes LSAT score(s) (no more than 5 years old), one letter of recommendation, and all required transcripts
There is no application fee.
If you have any questions about the FlexJD, please schedule an appointment with an enrollment specialist.
