The Haifa Summer Law Institute is open to all students who have completed their first-year courses and are in good academic standing at an ABA-accredited law school, as well as to practicing attorneys seeking to earn Continuing Legal Education credit. Space permitting, students with other backgrounds and qualifications are also eligible for acceptance.

Participants who attend a law school other than the University of Baltimore School of Law must submit a letter from their law school verifying that they meet the above requirements. The acceptance of credit for courses taken at the Haifa Summer Law Institute is subject to the approval of each student's home school. The University of Baltimore School of Law is fully accredited by the American Bar Association and is a member of the Association of American Law Schools.
