Admissions overview

  • Application deadline is March 1. Applications will not be accepted after this date.
  • We recommend you apply early. Early applications are considered for first offers of admission and scholarships.
  • Applicants are only considered once their file is complete.
  • A number of places in the first-year class are kept open until all applications received by the final deadline have been processed.
  • Enrolment in first year is limited to 92 students.
  • Each year, the number of applications greatly exceed the 92 seats. The selection process is highly competitive in all admission categories and many qualified applicants are not selected for admission.
  • Admissions policies assist in ensuring consistency and fairness, but admission decisions are wholly within the discretion of the  faculty through the Admissions Committee.

LSAT-FLEX

The Law School Admission Council (LSAC) has introduced the LSAT-Flex – an online remotely-proctored condensed version of the traditional LSAT – to address the COVID-19 challenges associated with traditional LSAT administration. When reviewing applications we will treat LSAT-Flex scores as comparable to traditional LSAT scores.
