Admissions Deadline Extended

Law School Admissions extends deadline

Due to issues arising from COVID-19, we are extending the priority application deadline to June 1, 2020.*

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.

JD applications received by June 1 for priority consideration are guaranteed to be considered for merit scholarship. 

JD applications received after the priority deadline may be considered for merit scholarship.
Binding Early Decision Program applications must be complete no later than December 31st

*Students may submit their application by June 1 for priority consideration and we will consider the April and June LSAT. Applicants can submit their applications prior to taking the LSAT.
