**The application for the fall 2017 incoming class has closed. The fall 2018 application opens Sept. 1.**

General Application Requirements

The following items must be submitted to complete our general application. 

  • A Bachelor's Degree
    Earned by your enrollment date, from an accredited college or university.
  • Law School Admission Test (LSAT) Scores
    Arizona Law accepts either the LSAT or GRE, as long as the score was earned within five years of the expected date of entry into law school. If you have already taken the LSAT, you must apply via our LSAT application. You may apply before you take the LSAT or receive your score, but your application will not be complete until LSAC releases your score and sends your CAS report to us. 
  • Completed Application and Domicile Affidavit
    Sign up for the LSAC Credential Assembly Service (CAS). Note that disclosure of your social security number is voluntary per privacy law.
  • Letters of Recommendation (two or more)
    Secure two letters of recommendation. These should substantively detail your analytical abilities and writing skills. You may choose to have these sent directly to Arizona Law or use the online LSAC services for submitting letters.
  • Personal Statement (4 pages double-spaced max)
    Write a personal statement describing your unique characteristics and personal qualities, including education and work experiences, talents and special interests, socioeconomic background, involvement in community affairs and public service, or any other circumstances that have helped shape your life or given it direction (four double-spaced pages or less).
  • Submit a resume
    A resume is one of the best ways to describe the range of your work and volunteer experiences, skills, and interests.
  • Other Considerations
    The admissions committee also evaluates educational experiences, grade trends, significant service, educational and occupational experiences, socioeconomic background, individual challenges, and other factors.

Applicants who plan to practice law should also note that bar admission requires consideration of character and moral fitness. We encourage you to learn more about various state bar associations and legal ethics as you plan your law education.
