The law school has a policy effective 2019 under which the Law School Admissions Test (LSAT) may be optional for certain eligible applicants. For more information about the LSAT policy, please contact Dean of Admissions, Wendy LaRiviere at email@example.com. Foreign applicants of non-English background may be required to take the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TEOFL) and submit their official scores to MCL. Individuals who received undergraduate or graduate degrees from a foreign academic institution must submit their transcripts to one of the State Bar approved evaluation services. Information is provided on the State Bar of California website (www.calbar.ca.gov).
Decisions on admissions are made on the basis of a “full file” review that includes each applicant’s previous academic record, test scores (if required or submitted), work experience, personal and professional recommendations, and a personal statement.
