ASU Law seeks to enroll a dynamic group of individuals who will provide an engaging learning environment. The admissions committee makes decisions after considering all the information provided by the applicant. Among the factors influencing the admission decision are LSAT performance, undergraduate grade point average, quality and grading patterns of undergraduate institutions, previous graduate education, demonstrated commitment to public service, work and leadership experience, extracurricular or community activities, history of overcoming economic or other disadvantages, uniqueness of experience and background, maturity, ability to communicate, foreign language proficiency, honors and awards, service in the armed forces, and publications.
The committee does not conduct interviews and relies solely upon the information applicants choose to share in their application. ASU Law is committed to a more sustainable and resilient future and requires applicants to apply electronically through the Law School Admission Council (LSAC) website at LSAC.org.
The fall 2022 JD application will be available through LSAC on August 10, 2021.
