All applicants must take the Law School Admission Test (LSAT) no later than March of the year in which they intend to enter Campbell Law. However, you are encouraged to take the LSAT in June, October or December of the previous year to ensure timely consideration of your application.
There is no minimum score for entry into Campbell Law. In the event of multiple LSAT scores, the admissions committee will consider the highest of all scores reported. The admissions committee will not consider an LSAT score if more than five years have passed since the date the test was taken.
A bachelor’s degree from an approved and accredited college or university is required. A transcript from each college or university attended must be sent to the Law School Admission Council’s Credential Assembly Service (CAS). All work completed in summer school, at another university, at an unaccredited institution or any other situation in which you might have earned academic credit must be acknowledged on your CAS report.
Prior Law School Attendees
Applicants who have attended another ABA-accredited law school must submit a written statement about their attendance, a complete transcript, and a statement from their dean indicating class rank and certifying good standing and eligibility to return to the home institution as a continuing student. Those not in good standing or ineligible to return as a continuing student at another ABA-accredited law school are not eligible to apply to Campbell Law even if applying as a first-year law student. Credit is not given for correspondence courses or other work not completed in residence at an ABA-accredited law school.
Employment During Law School
Campbell Law full-time students are not permitted to work* during the first year of school. Students are permitted to work during winter break and summer breaks. During the second and third years of law school, ABA standards dictate that students enrolled full-time may not work more than 20 hours per week.
*There are no employment restrictions placed on students enrolled in the Campbell FLEX program.
