The Juris Doctor Program (JD)

At The University of Texas School of Law (UT Law), we want our graduates to become erudite leaders, zealous advocates, and responsible professionals. Graduates start as applicants whom we evaluate for indications of success. Those indicators can be found in numerous aspects of the application, including various academic experiences; employment history; ethnic and cultural backgrounds; and representation from diverse geographic regions. Upon applying to UT Law, every complete application submitted is reviewed in its entirety. Applicants can be assured that their application will be given full and expeditious attention.

To begin, there is no minimum LSAT score for consideration. Each applicant must take the LSAT and have earned a baccalaureate degree from an accredited college or university with a minimum undergraduate grade point average of 2.2 as calculated by Law School Admission Council (LSAC). In the event an applicant does not receive a baccalaureate degree prior to enrollment but is within six semester hours of completing all requirements for a baccalaureate degree by the time of enrollment in law school, the applicant may be eligible for admission upon the condition that the applicant earns the baccalaureate degree before beginning the last year of law school.

Please review the full admission requirements on our website. We welcome you to UT Law, and hope to number you as one of our alumni.
