All applicants to the JD Flex program must have an undergraduate degree from a regionally accredited institution. Applicants are encouraged to apply as early as possible during the admission cycle. In order to be considered by the Admissions Committee, you must submit a completed application by the deadline.
Applicants must register with the Law School Admission Council (LSAC) and submit applications via the LSAC website. Students educated outside of the U.S. or Canada must submit their official transcripts to LSAC for evaluation. LSAC does not accept evaluations from other credential review services.
In addition to a bar examination, there are character, fitness, and other qualifications for admission to the bar in every U.S. jurisdiction. Applicants are encouraged to determine the requirements for any jurisdiction in which they intend to seek admission by contacting the jurisdiction. Addresses for all relevant agencies are available through the National Conference of Bar Examiners.
Preparing Your Application
- Completed and signed application form
- Personal statement
- Current resume
- Additional statement of interest (if applicable)
- Character and fitness addendum (if applicable)
- Fellowship application essay (if applicable)
- Letters of recommendation (must submit at least one; we will accept up to four)
- A current LSAC Credential Assembly Service (CAS) law school report, including a valid LSAT score, all post-secondary transcripts, and any transfer and/or foreign-earned credits
Applications are complete when they contain all of the required materials detailed above. When an application is complete, it is forwarded to the Admissions Committee for review. A decision is typically rendered four to six weeks after an application is forwarded to the committee, but may be reached sooner. Applicants may be asked to complete an invitation-only interview process. Applicants will be notified of decisions through email and LSAC’s Online Status Check. All admission decisions are final.
It is the applicant’s responsibility to notify the Admissions Office of any changes (e.g., mailing address, email address, and/or phone number) that occurs after an application has been submitted.
GGU Law provides an Online Status Check via the LSAC website for applicants to check the progress of their application. We encourage applicants to check their status via this service, as it provides the most up-to-date information. Once the Admissions Office receives an application, the applicant is emailed a confirmation, which includes a unique username and password to access the online status check.
The Admissions Committee’s review process is holistic and takes many factors into account. While we recognize that LSAT and GPA will play a factor in rendering a decision, no one element weighs more heavily than another. Our comprehensive file review incorporates your resume, personal statement, letters of recommendation, LSAT writing sample, work experience, and life experience into consideration. We also accept addenda that allow you to expand on special academic achievements and professional opportunities or that may give us greater context on matters of character and fitness.
