Admissions and Financial Aid
With its attractive urban location, appealing small class size, extensive alumni network and many other benefits offered by a Duquesne University School of Law education, it’s no surprise that admission to the school is a goal shared by many people from around the country. Last year, applications were received from residents of dozens of states and several countries. The current entering class earned undergraduate degrees at more than 60 different colleges and universities.
The School of Law offers both full- and part-time programs, several joint degree programs, and study abroad options. Candidates for whom Duquesne University School of Law is their first choice law school may also apply to our Binding Early Decision Program, ensuring a decision on their application by December 1st.
Small Class Sizes
Because of its commitment to small class sizes and personalized attention, the Admissions Committee annually selects only those students it judges to best exhibit the requisite abilities and background for academic and professional success.
Every applicant is individually considered by the Admissions Committee for acceptance into the degree program of his or her choice. The thorough review process ensures that all relevant factors are considered before a decision is made.
Throughout the application process, particular emphasis is placed on the applicant’s prior academic record and aptitude for the study of law.
