The Quinnipiac University School of Law offers fall enrollment for both full-time day and part-time evening students.

Admission is very competitive. For Fall 2014, we received more than 815 applications for a 1L class of 92 members. We admit those applicants who have the most potential to emerge from the law school experience as excellent, responsible lawyers.

The most important factors considered are:

  • Undergraduate scholastic record
  • Law School Admission Test scores

We also weigh factors such as:

  • Applicant's personal statement
  • Letters of recommendation
  • Advanced degrees
  • Life and work experience
  • Extracurricular activities
  • Applicant’s ability to enhance the diversity of perspectives represented in our student body

More about our class profile

We operate under a rolling-admission system, but have a priority application deadline of March 1 for admission and scholarships. Candidates for the Dean’s Fellows full-tuition awards should apply by Feb. 1.

Quinnipiac University School of Law supports equality of educational and employment opportunity. No person shall be denied admission to any educational program or activity or be denied employment on the basis of race, color, handicap, religion, age, gender, sexual orientation, or ethnic or national origin.
