School of Law Admission

Civil Clinic Slider 6All 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).

Applicants should contact Law Services online or call or at 215-968-1001 to register for the LSAT and subscribe to the CAS. February is normally the last month when the LSAT can be taken for applicants to be considered for the upcoming fall admission. Only LSAT scores received within the last five years are considered current. You may submit the School of Law application before or after taking the LSAT and before subscribing to the CAS, but early application is encouraged. First-year admission occurs only in the fall of each year.
