NOTE: LSAC charges a non-waivable application fee of $21.00. There is no separate application fee for Arizona law.

We do not, however, actually require that you send us an application fee.
(all documentation/information should be submitted through LSAC)
- J.D. with Advanced Standing Application.
- University Transcripts. All transcripts should be submitted through Law School Admissions Council’s Credential Assembly Service.
- Personal Statement. The personal statement is both a writing sample and an opportunity to discuss your unique characteristics and personal qualities, including educational and work experiences, talents and special interests, socioeconomic background, involvement in community affairs and public service, or any events or circumstances that have helped shape your life or given it direction. It should not exceed three double-spaced pages in length.
- Two or more recommendations.
- At least one recommender should be from a faculty member at the institution awarding the first law degree. If not, please explain why this is not available in the appropriate departmental question on the application.
- Applicants who seek credit for their LL.M. courses must submit at least one recommendation from an instructor at the institution that granted their LL.M. degree.
The strongest recommendations are substantive and detail the applicant's analytical abilities and writing skills. It is worth making a significant effort to communicate with your recommenders regarding the need for detail
- TOEFL. English proficiency is one of the conditions for admission for all applicants whose native language is not English. Students who have received their undergraduate degrees in countries where English is not recognized as an official language - despite matriculation in a school where English was the language of instruction - must submit a Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) score. A minimum score of 600 (=100 iBT) or higher is expected. Please contact the Educational Testing Service and request that your score be sent to the University of Arizona (institution code number 4832). Alternatively, we will accept an IELTS score, with a minimum overall 7.5 score and no subsection less than 7.0.
- Character and Fitness Applicants who intend to practice law should be aware that bar admission in all U.S. states involves consideration of a bar applicant's character and moral fitness for the practice of law. Applicants should acquaint themselves with the bar admission requirements of the states in which they intend to practice. A link to the websites of the various state bars can be found here: Bar Associations.
