Apply to the J.D. Program

We invite you to apply to the youngest top law school in the nation – UCLA School of Law.

Our strength is rooted in a tradition of innovation established when we opened our doors in 1949. We have all the advantages you would expect at a prestigious law school: diverse academic programs, world-renowned faculty and an impressive student body. Our immersive and inventive approach to learning ensures students are intellectually challenged and personally fulfilled.

We will begin accepting applications for Fall 2021 in early September through the LSAC online application service. Applications will be due by February 1, 2021. The Office of Admissions is available to help you experience a smooth and successful application process.

Please consult our LL.M. and S.J.D. sections for information on applying to those programs.
