Law School Entrance
Enrollment is limited to applicants who have attained a Juris Doctor or equivalent degree from a law school accredited by the Association of American Law Schools. However, graduates of law schools accredited or provisionally accredited by the American Bar Association, and graduates of law schools outside the U.S., may be considered for admission on the basis of outstanding credentials.
Admission is determined by the applicant’s potential for distinguished performance in and contribution to the program. The candidate’s academic record, especially in law school, is of particular importance. Additional factors may include stature of institutions awarding the baccalaureate and law degrees, the applicant’s professional experience and geographical factors.
Generally, successful candidates have graduated within the top quarter of their law school class and have attained an honors average in their last two years of baccalaureate work. With these academic records, especially in law school, as the basic considerations, the potential of each applicant is measured against that of other candidates. The objective of the admissions policy is to fill each class with the best students from the applicant pool, consistent with maintenance of the program’s high admission standards.
Applicants must apply between October 1 and June 1 for admission the following August. The University of Florida asks that all applicants use the Online Application Form found at the bottom of this page.
