All candidates for admission must be graduates of an accredited college or university prior to registration at the School of Law.
Applicants from a variety of academic backgrounds are offered admission each year. No specific undergraduate academic curriculum is required, but it is highly recommended that the course of study emphasizes skill in critical thinking and logical analysis, and that students strive to develop strong writing skills. Duquesne Law does not accept students who have been dismissed from other law schools for academic reasons.
