The admissions committee considers for admission students who wish to attend the William S. Boyd School of Law as visiting students after having completed a minimum of one year of legal study at an ABA-accredited law school (or an accredited Canadian law school), for no more than two semesters to earn credit for transfer to their home institution.
Applicants must submit:
- a completed application form;
- a $50 non-refundable application fee;
- a personal statement no longer than three typewritten pages, which should include some discussion of why the applicant wishes to visit the Boyd School of Law;
- a résumé;
- a Credential Assembly Service (CAS) report containing a transcript summary and a record of LSAT scores;
- a letter of good standing from the law school at which the applicant has studied, including class rank (if available); and
- an official law school transcript.
The admissions committee will assess visiting applicants using the same criteria as those used in assessing first-year applicants, as well as the applicant's performance in law school courses and the quality of the law school at which the applicant has studied. Application deadlines are July 1 for the fall semester, December 1 for the spring semester, and May 1 for the summer semester.
