Any law student who is currently attending an American Bar Association (ABA) accredited law school and is in good academic standing can apply as a non-matriculating or visiting student. Visiting students must have permission from the dean of their law school to take courses at JMLS. Applicants must submit the following materials:
- A completed application;
- $50.00 application fee (non-refundable);
- An official transcript of all prior law school coursework sent directly to the Office of Admissions;
- A letter of good standing from the home school clearly stating that credit for classes undertaken at JMLS will be applied to your degree at your home school.
The Office of Admissions prefers and recommends the use of the Law School Assembly Service (LSAC) for application and document processing. Students who are unable to utilize the LSAC service may submit their downloaded application and documents electronically or via mail. Regardless of submission method, all applicants are considered equally based upon their application materials.
If you are disabled or have difficulty accessing the LSAC website or our website, please call the Office of Admissions for assistance at (404) 872-3593. Please note that the LSAC website is not currently accessible for visually impaired applicants using screen readers. However, you may call the LSAC technical support services at (215) 968-1393 for assistance in completing the application through the LSAC website.
Students requiring financial aid must apply for assistance through their home school (JMLS does not offer any financial aid to visiting students). The home school must initiate consortium agreements with our Office of Financial Aid. The home school will collect financial aid application forms and award students’ financial aid. JMLS will act as a transfer agent only for disbursing funds to students.
