Admissions Process

Fill Out an Application
Complete an application for admission online at tls.edu/apply or in person by visiting our campus. Incomplete applications will not be considered. In addition to your application, you are advised to promptly complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).

LSAT
JD Applicants must complete the Law School Admission Test (LSAT), an examination designed to assess law school candidates' potential for success in legal study, in order to be considered for the regular JD program. Applicants who have not yet taken the LSAT are still encouraged to apply. 

MLS applicants are not required to take the LSAT.

Transcripts
Transcripts must be sent directly to Trinity Law School by the issuing school or provided through LSAC's Credential Assembly Service in order to be considered official. 

Official transcripts from all colleges and universities attended are required for all JD applicants. Only official transcripts from colleges and universities at which degrees were earned are required for MLS applicants.

Recommendations
Two recommendations are required for all applicants.  These recommendations may be from professors, instructors or professional associates who can comment on the candidate's character and potential for success in legal study. Recommendations must be sent directly to Trinity Law School from the recommenders or provided through LSAC's Credential Assembly Service.

All applicants are required to submit a personal statement. The personal statement should address why the applicant desires to study law, particularly at Trinity Law School. In addition, the applicant should address all professional and personal goals for the future, as well as any factors that may have affected academic success in the past.

Interviews
Applicants will be required to interview with the Admissions Office prior to an admission decision. The Admissions Office will contact the applicant to schedule the interview.
