Students who enter law school generally do so after having completed a bachelor’s degree. However, the Loyola School of Law may accept students after they have completed three years of exceptionally good undergraduate work and have earned an appropriate score on LSAT. Students in the College of Humanities and Natural Sciences who wish to attempt early admission into the Loyola School of Law after three years must have completed all but the last 30 hours on the undergraduate level, including all Common Curriculum, major, named adjunct, and foreign language requirements. The first 30 hours earned in law school will be applied as general elective credits for completion of the humanities and natural Sciences undergraduate degree.

A humanities and natural sciences student who completes the hour requirement in three years as outlined above is not guaranteed acceptance into the Loyola School of Law, for the School of Law has final authority on all admissions decisions. Interested students should consult the Loyola School of Law Office of Admissions for information concerning admissions standards.
