The University of Maine School of Law provides a quality education which begins with the selection of a diverse, motivated and accomplished student body. We invite you to submit an application.
To be eligible for admission, you must hold a baccalaureate degree from an accredited college or university and register with the Law School Data Assembly Service (LSDAS). In addition, you must sit for the Law School Admissions Test (LSAT) which is administered in February, June, October, and December at centers throughout the United States and around the world. The LSAT should be taken as early as possible, but no later than the February prior to the September in which you plan to enter law school.
The Admissions Committee considers each applicant on an individual basis. Your undergraduate performance, as evidenced by success in a challenging course of study, good performance on the LSAT, your personal statement, and personal recommendations are the primary selection criteria in the admission process.
Admission is for the fall semester only. Regular applications are accepted beginning September 15th; April 15th is the deadline date. The Admissions Committee operates on a rolling admission basis. The review of completed files occurs on an ongoing basis with decisions between December and May of each year. A candidate is notified as soon as an admission decision is made.
