About

Our Juris Doctor (JD) degree program provides the opportunity to pursue your legal education in a collegial and student-centered environment.

Preparing for Law

High school

There are no specific high school requirements for the Juris Doctor program. If you haven't yet completed university-level course work you can view the admission requirements of programs you are interested in pursuing for your required two years of university studies you need before applying to Law.

University

  • You need two full years of academic work at a recognized university or equivalent. There are no recommended pre-law programs or classes, we accept students from all accredited programs. Read through the Admission Requirements below to see what is needed to be considered for admission.

  • Because the number of applicants far exceeds the number of available places, the College strongly recommends that prospective applicants consider working towards an undergraduate degree by choosing courses that meet the requirements of the degree. This will ensure alternate choices if Law is no longer an option.
