Academic Excellent Early Decision Program — December 1
Applicants for whom Brooklyn Law School is their first choice may choose to apply through our binding Academic Excellence Early Decision Program. This is a highly competitive and binding early admissions decision program. Early Decision applicants must submit their applications with all required materials by December 1 and must take the LSAT exam no later than the November administration or submit a valid GRE score by December 1.

Accelerated 2-Year J.D. Degree Program — May 15
Applicants who apply for the accelerated J.D. program should be aware that they are required to attend a 2-year orientation on May 20-21, 2019 and that the first day of classes is anticipated to be May 22, 2019.

Regular Review — No Deadline
Applications are reviewed as they become complete. An application is considered complete when all required documents, including the candidate's Credential Assembly Service (CAS) Report and at least two faculty recommendations or evaluations, have been received by the School's Admissions Office. Candidates are advised to consider the several weeks it will take for the CAS to process their Law School Report and other documents and incorporate this into the application timeline.  There is no regular review deadline, but applications completed by February 1 are given first consideration. Applicants who take the LSAT administered in June may still be eligible for fall admission.

Edward V. Sparer Public Interest Law Fellowship Applicants — April 15
Your fellowship application, complete with all credentials, must be received by April 15, even if you have not yet heard from the Admissions Committee regarding the status of your admission application. Review of fellowship applications begins after the April 15 deadline, and decisions are announced soon thereafter to candidates that have been accepted for admission to the Law School. Therefore, early filing of your application for admission is strongly encouraged.

Admitted Student Seat Deposit – April 15
Admitted students who wish to confirm acceptance at Brooklyn Law School are required to pay an initial seat deposit of $300, as well as a nonrefundable matriculation fee of $25. The seat deposit, which reserves a place in the entering class, will be applied against tuition for the first term if the admitted student matriculates.

If an admitted student makes an initial seat deposit prior to April 15, and subsequently notifies the Office of Admissions that he or she will not be attending Brooklyn Law School, the student is entitled to a full refund of the $300 seat deposit, provided that written notification of withdrawal is postmarked, faxed, e-mailed, or hand-delivered by April 15. In the event that a withdrawal of admission occurs after April 15, the $300 seat deposit is partially refundable, in accordance with the following schedule:

Date of Withdrawal Refund

April 16 – April 29 $ 150

The tuition down payment, together with the previously paid seat deposit and matriculation fee, will be credited toward tuition and fee charges for the first term if the admitted student matriculates.

If an admitted student pays the $600 tuition down payment prior to June 1, and subsequently notifies the Office of Admissions that he or she will not be attending Brooklyn Law School, the student is entitled to a full refund of the $600, provided that written notification of withdrawal is postmarked, faxed, e-mailed, or hand-delivered by June 1.
