Admissions Policy

At Quinnipiac University School of Law, our focus is on educating the whole lawyer. We empower you to retain your personal values and sense of self while teaching you to be skilled, knowledgeable, and ethical practitioners of the law. Quinnipiac Law has a responsibility to educate lawyers who will serve the legal needs of all members of society. With this responsibility in mind, we enroll students whose lived experience suggests that they have the capacity to make a substantial contribution to the learning environment of the law school and to distinguish themselves in serving the community through the practice of law, policy improvement, government service, legal scholarship, or other law-related activities. We aspire to educate lawyers who are interested in improving access to quality representation and justice.

While past academic performance and LSAT scores are important aspects of an application, we also consider additional factors including (but not limited to): letters of recommendation; the clarity and quality of writing (throughout the entire application); advanced degrees; employment history; commitment to community service; experience navigating social, educational, physical, or economic challenges; moral character; academic growth and improving grades; rigor of undergraduate curriculum; extracurricular activities; distinctions/honors achieved; and life experience.
