Your application will be assessed using the same criteria as for first-year admissions as well as law school references, performance in first year law and an applicant’s stated reasons for wanting to transfer.Space limitation in the law school may be a factor in admitting transfer applicants, which means that in some years few or no transfer applicants will be admitted, despite compelling or extenuating circumstances.

In addition, LOP students may not take any of the following courses due to space restrictions: any 400 level course, Administrative Law, Civil Procedure, Evidence, Ethical Lawyering, Negotiation, and Advocacy. Please note that in any given year additional course restrictions may apply
