Applicants must apply online through the Law School Admission Council (LSAC).
Admission as a transfer student beyond the first semester of the second-year is rare, and will not typically be granted if you have completed more than 45 hours of law school work.
Most successful transfer students are in the top 5 percent to 10 percent of their law school class, and transfer admission is indeed based on the entire applicant profile.
Your first-year law school performance is paramount; however, the Admissions Committee does consider all other information in your file, such as your undergraduate and any other graduate transcripts, LSAT and/or GRE performance, letters of recommendation, and a statement regarding why you are seeking transfer.
It is highly preferred that one (1) letter of recommendation be from law school faculty.
Letters of recommendation must be submitted through LSAC’s Letter of Recommendation Service.If your CAS account is still active from your original law school application process, you may simply release your CAS report to UK Law.For your transfer application to be complete, an official law school transcript including at least 25 graded credit hours of coursework must be sent directly to UK Law Admissions.This statement must include the reason(s) why you are applying as a transfer student.The statement will be used both as a sample of your writing ability and for its insights into your background, goals, and potential for enriching the UK Law's academic environment.Transfer applicants seeking to apply credit from LL.
