Law School Application Deadlines 2018

The decision to go to law school can be one of the most important choices a person makes, particularly during the conclusion of their undergraduate career. The main issue to remember regarding law school application deadlines is that in many cases the school will be inflexible as to when a person can apply.

The 2018 law school application deadlines list 203 law schools nationwide, a school’s ranking, as well as the city and state the law school is in, and most importantly, that school’s Fall 2018 application deadline.
