Document deadline for first-year JD applicants January 31 Document deadline for first-year JD applicants (Regular, Discretionary, Indigenous)
LSAT Deadline January Last acceptable writing of the LSAT. Decisions are made on a rolling basis beginning in December and continue through to the summer months. We strongly encourage applicants to take the LSAT prior to the January test date. An applicant who wishes to rely on the January LSAT score may diminish his/her chance of gaining admission due to the delayed review of his/her file and the possibility that there may no longer be positions available in the upcoming entry class. Applications from candidates who write the January LSAT will not be considered complete and will not be reviewed until all elements, including the January LSAT score, are received. After the complete file is reviewed, if it is considered competitive with other applicants for a place in the upcoming entry class and if a position is still available, the applicant may either be admitted or placed on a wait list.
Upper-year Applications April 30 Deadline for upper-year applications and all documents except law transcripts (Transfer, Letter of Permission, Advanced Standing).
Law Transcript Deadline for Upper-year Applicants June 7 Deadline for law transcripts for upper-year applicants (Transfer, Letter of Permission, NCA, Advanced Standing). We recommend that students applying for Transfer or Visiting (Letter of Permission) categories order transcripts as soon as their law grades are released in order to avoid any delays.
