  • Application for admission. Electronic applications (preferred) are available through LSAC.
  • $75 application fee
  • A letter of good standing from the dean at your current law school
  • An official transcript, sent directly to the Office of Admissions, from your current law school, reflecting law courses completed and grades received from all law schools attended
  • An updated copy of your CAS from the Law School Admission Council indicating all law schools attended
  • Two (2) letters of recommendation
  • A statement of the reason for visiting, in lieu of the personal statement
  • A resume or comprehensive listing of experience and achievements

We will begin accepting applications for students who wish to visit in the Fall 2016 and/or Spring 2017 semesters on May 3, 2016. The application deadline is July 15, 2016. Admissions decisions regarding visiting applications are typically made after mid-July.
