Application and deadline information for first-year JD applicants.
The priority application deadline for the Fall 2023 for both the Full Time and Part Time JD (First Year Applicants) is February 1, 2023.
Full-Time or Part-Time
Students may apply to the full-time JD program or the part-time (day) JD program. Applicants may not apply to both programs.
