With all the benefits a Duquesne University School of Law education has to offer, it’s no surprise that admission to the school is a goal shared by many people, both throughout the Pittsburgh region and around the country. Last year, applications were received from residents of 40 states and several countries. The applicants earned undergraduate degrees at more than 300 different colleges and universities.
Small Class Sizes
Because of its commitment to small class sizes and personalized attention, the Admissions Committee annually selects only those students it judges to best exhibit the requisite abilities and background for academic and professional success.
Every applicant is individually considered by the Admissions Committee for acceptance into the degree program of his or her choice. The thorough review process ensures that all relevant factors are considered before a decision is made.
Throughout the application process, particular emphasis is placed on the applicant’s prior academic record and aptitude for the study of law.
Applicants for the Part-Time Day and Evening Divisions often have significant work experience or postgraduate training in other fields. These types of accomplishments are considered and should be described in the student’s application materials.
