Admission to St. Mary's School of Law

Applying to St. Mary's School of Law

All applicants for admission to St. Mary’s University School of Law must possess a bachelor’s or higher degree from an accredited college or university, or its equivalent, prior to beginning their legal education. All applicants must complete and submit a St. Mary’s University School of Law application for admission. All applicants must also subscribe to the Credential Assembly Service (CAS) and register for, and take, the Law School Admission Test (LSAT).
