Tuition and Aid

Louisville Law offers annually renewable scholarship funding on the basis of academic merit. Admitted applicants are automatically considered for available merit scholarship funding with no separate application required. While not the only factors considered by the Admissions Committee in allocating scholarship funds, an applicant’s LSAT score and undergraduate GPA will be strongly taken into account. Scholarship decisions are made on a rolling basis. Applications that are not complete as of our regular application deadline are not eligible for merit scholarship funding.

Admission Decisions: Beyond the Numbers

The application process is an opportunity for interested candidates to demonstrate their potential for the successful study of law. A supportive and collaborative community, Louisville Law actively seeks to recruit a class of talented individuals with strong credentials, diverse backgrounds and unique experiences. The first-year application opens in October, and the Admissions Committee typically begins reviewing applications in November, with decisions rendered thereafter on a rolling basis. All applicants must create an LSAC account and register for the Credential Assembly Service in order to apply. An application will not be considered complete and eligible for review until the law school has received all required components.
