All applicants are required to take the Law School Admission Test (LSAT) and to register for the Law School Data Assembly Service (LSDAS). Registration packets and test information are available at most law schools and from Law School Admission Council, Box 2000, 661 Penn Street, Newtown, PA 18940-0998. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
No specific prelaw course is required or recommended, and the School of Law subscribes to the remarks set forth on prelaw preparation in The Official Guide to U.S. Law Schools (2000 Edition). Applications for admission to the next entering class must be postmarked no later than January 15. To be assured of consideration for admission, an applicant must have complete credentials, including the LSDAS report, filed in the School of Law by February 1. An application fee (at this writing, $50) also is required.
Applicants should request application forms and instructions from the admissions office in time to permit filing of all application materials by July 7.
Applications are considered only if vacancies exist. Selection of the applicants is based on evidence either (1) that the candidate can produce above-average work at this law school, or (2) that the candidate will contribute to the diversity of the student body.
Students working on law degrees to be conferred by the University have priority over non-degree candidates in the selection of courses. This policy is in accordance with the general University policy on the registration of nonmatriculated students.
School of Law grants are awarded primarily on the basis of financial need, although scholarship, or other factors may be considered with regard to certain awards. Inquiries concerning School of Law aid should be addressed to Financial Aid Coordinator, School of Law, Condon Hall, Box 354600, University of Washington, Seattle, WA 98195-4600; email@example.com.
