Please note: There will be NO credit for law firms conducted BEFORE the end of the law school threshold period by the applicant OR the submission of the commencement certificate.

For many applicants, the committee is only able to make a decision when it has a clear picture of the entire pool of applicants for the year. Be careful and thorough in preparing your applications and plan ahead to ensure you have all the necessary materials before the following dates. Applications submitted after these deadlines will be reviewed on a spatial basis.
