Thank you for your interest in transferring to UCLA School of Law. The transfer application for Fall 2020 will open on May 1. The priority application deadline is June 15 and applications may be submitted through June 30. Please note that applicants must be enrolled at another American Bar Association (ABA)-approved law school. You may submit your application with your fall semester grades only. The admissions committee may in some circumstances review applications prior to receipt of second semester grades. Applying early is highly encouraged as it may allow for a decision to be rendered more quickly. Please note that the Office of Admissions is aware that many law schools have moved to pass/fail or similar grading systems for the spring semester. Your transfer application will not be negatively impacted by such changes.
UCLA Law believes transfer students further enrich the quality of UCLA's academic program. There is ample evidence of the ways transfer students contribute to the institution in classroom interaction, in the energy devoted to clinical efforts, in student projects, and in faculty-supervised research. The faculty believes that it is appropriate to make some spaces available in the second year for those individuals who have achieved academic distinction during their first year at other law schools. Your application for admission must be submitted through the LSAC online application service.
If you are a current student enrolled in the UCLA LL.M. program interested in transferring to our J.D. program, please contact the admissions office at email@example.com for more detailed instructions regarding specific application procedures.
