The school of law receives applications from a diverse population of potential law students each year looking to transfer from another ABA-accredited law school or visit for a semester. The primary consideration for transfer applicants is your performance in the first year of law school as well as your plans for the summer months. The original law school application is also reviewed, including your undergraduate and graduate performance, LSAT scores, work experience, and other factors when making an admissions decision.
Admission is based upon the review of all documents submitted by the applicant.
Requirements for transfer applicants
Your application will be reviewed once your official ABA-accredited law school transcript, letter of good standing, and current CAS report are received. Other items are suggested but not required.
- Current CAS report
- Official law school transcript showing 18 or more credits
- Letter of good standing from your current law school
- Personal statement
- Letter of recommendation
- Application for Maryland Residency if applicable (included with online application)
Requirements for visiting applicants
You may apply to visit for a single term if you have completed one year of study at an ABA-accredited law school. You may apply to visit for your final year of law study, up to 30 credits if you have completed two years of study at an ABA-approved law school. You must supply a letter from the dean of the home institution. The letter must state that you:
- are in good standing
- may visit for the term
- may transfer all credits successfully completed at UBalt
