Dean's Certification Form: http://www.law.stanford.edu/program/deg ... _formb.pdf
The form must be given to the current dean of students (or a comparable administrative official with access to the school's official records) at the college from which you received your baccalaureate degree. The official should send the completed form directly to the law school. Foreign-educated applicants need not complete the form.
Letters of Recommendation: http://www.law.stanford.edu/program/deg ... plication/
Please be aware of the high value Stanford places on school-specific letters of recommendation. If you choose to provide us with a targeted letter, please be sure to assign the appropriate targeted letter to Stanford Law School.

Notification of Acceptance: http://www.law.stanford.edu/program/deg ... acceptance
The law school uses a rolling admissions process, acting upon applications throughout the admissions season as they are completed. However, some applications are held until the committee has reviewed the entire applicant pool. This second review occurs in April, at which time the class will be filled. (A small number of applications will be held for possible use in filling vacancies that may occur during the summer.)
The Office of Admissions will make every effort to send applicants a first response (accept, deny, or wait list) by April 30.
