Located in Miami, the St. Thomas University School of Law holds membership with the Association of American Law Schools and earned accreditation from the American Bar Association. The Law School Admissions Council (LSAC) reviews applications throughout an academic year beginning in September and ending in July. Applicants need to submit their LSAT scores along with official transcripts for all undergraduate, graduate, and professional degrees or certifications for review. Interviews are not required for admission, but visiting the campus and meeting faculty members are advised prior to enrolling.
Applicants are also required to write a personal statement, no more than four pages, detailing their professional and personal interests in law as well as the reason for choosing to apply to St. Thomas University’s law school. Personal statements should also discuss achievements and experiences and how they translate to the study and practice of law. A letter of recommendation, preferably from a colleague, professional superior, or professor, is required. Applicants can send up to four letters of recommendation.
