Tulane University Law School offers two programs for eligible students at Newcomb-Tulane College.
Pre-law Acceptance Program candidates complete the full four years of the normal baccalaureate program and are guaranteed admission to Tulane Law School so long as they fulfill the requirements described below. Only students who complete all four years of college at Tulane (with the exception of the junior year abroad through Tulane) are eligible for this program. Students are expected to follow an academically rigorous program.
Students who achieve a cumulative grade point average of 3.5 in all undergraduate course work and a score of 162 or higher on the LSAT are guaranteed admission to Tulane Law School within two years of the completion of the BA or BS degree. Admission is conditioned on meeting the character and fitness requirements of Tulane Law School. Candidates must apply for admission by January 1st of the year in which they wish to enroll; applications must be complete by February 1st.
With the permission of the appropriate undergraduate dean, students at Newcomb-Tulane College may apply for admission to Tulane Law School during the junior year. If admitted, students enroll as full-time law students during what would otherwise be the senior year. At the successful conclusion of that year, the BA or BS is awarded. After two more years of full-time low study, the JD is awarded. This program enables students to receive the BA or BS and the JD in six years.
Students wishing to apply to Tulane Law School under the 3/3 Program should take the LSAT during the summer between the sophomore and junior years, or during the fall semester of the junior year. Application to Tulane Law School should be made between October 1st and January 1st of the junior year.
