Law School Admissions

Practice-Focused From the Beginning

Guided by a highly dedicated faculty who know what it takes to practice the law, at the Blewett School of Law you focus on learning what lawyers do every day. Our students thrive in an experience-rich environment that integrates theory and practice, offering real-world experience so our students can hit the ground running.

Collegiality Over Competition

The class size of approximately 80 incoming law students each year allows for small seminars and individualized learning in a tight-knit community that fosters close and respectful working relationships.

Make a Difference

Through our nationally-recognized programs in American Indian law and environmental and natural resources law, our extensive pro bono program and our broad array of clinical offerings, you can serve your community while in law school at the same time you hone your practice skills. After graduation, you will have the advantages of our network of judges and practitioners, opening doors to careers of meaning. 


Our application opens on September 1st and closes on July 15th.

Applications that have not been completed or submitted after July 15 will not be considered for admission.
