Individual Consideration

Every applicant is individually considered by the Admissions Committee for acceptance into the degree program of his or her choice. The thorough review process ensures that all relevant factors are considered before a decision is made. Particular emphasis is placed on the applicant’s prior academic record and aptitude for the study of law.

Small Class Sizes

Because of its commitment to small class sizes and personalized attention, the Admissions Committee annually selects only those students it judges to best exhibit the requisite abilities and background for academic and professional success.
