How to Apply - Part-Time/Hybrid Program

Like most law schools, LMU Law makes offers where applicants appear to have the necessary qualities required for success in law school and in the practice of law. While the cumulative undergraduate grade point average (GPA) and either LSAT or GRE score are the most traditional factors determining admission, we will also consider letters of recommendation; academic performance; community service; extra-curricular or co-curricular activities; evidence of a strong work ethic and maturity; military service; employment history; and an ability to contribute to the diversity of the LMU Law community.

In compliance with ABA Standard 504(a), we must inform applicants of the following:

In addition to a bar examination, there are character, fitness, and other qualifications for admission to the bar in every U.S. jurisdiction. Applicants are encouraged to determine the requirements for any jurisdiction in which they intend to seek admission by contacting the jurisdiction. Addresses for all relevant agencies are available through the National Conference of Bar Examiners.

Our complete admissions policies and procedures can be found in the Admission Policies and Procedures Manual.

For August 2023 admission, LMU Law will accept either the Law School Admission Test (LSAT) or the Graduate Record Exam (GRE) as part of the admission process.

The applications for fall 2024 for our full-time and part-time/hybrid programs will appear on the LSAC website around October 1, 2023.

With the ABA's approval of our application for acquiescence to the ABA Standards to offer a part-time/hybrid program, LMU Law no longer offers a flex-time program.

For the part-time/hybrid program, the priority consideration application deadline is May 1, 2023. The actual deadline is June 15, 2023. While we hope to fill the available seats with applicants who apply by May 1st, we will continue to accept applications until the June 15th deadline.
