Applying to the 2-Year J.D. Program for Foreign-Trained Lawyers is similar to applying to our traditional J.D. Program as an international student, except that Law School Admissions Test (LSAT) is not required.

No application will be considered complete for submission to the Admissions Committee until the following materials have been received and processed:

  • Completed Application
  • Personal statement
  • Required: Two letters of recommendation
  • Register with the Law School Data Assembly Service (LSDAS)
  • Submit TOEFL or IELTS score via LSAC’s document assembly service

It is not required that you take the LSAT to apply.

Candidates for the 2-Year Program will be required to interview with the Dean of Admissions. This will give us an opportunity to learn more about the candidate’s desire to pursue the degree, and will give the candidate the opportunity to learn more about the program.

Applicants should register online through LSAC and select the 2-Year J.D. Program for Foreign-Trained Lawyers on the application.

THERE IS NO FEE TO APPLY. Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis, and the deadline to apply is May 15.
