Dual Citizenship

Should I indicate on my application that I have dual citizenship?
Would law schools care about that? Could it potentially help or hurt my admission chances?

What country? I included it in my applications and I am a dual citizen with Spain.

I don't think that the fact of having dual citizenship has any appreciable impact on admissions, in and of itself. But if you've done some interesting things in that other country, then it would probably provide some great material for a diversity statement.

In the theoretical world it can only help. In the real world...it doesn't matter.

It will neither help nor hurt.

It could help, but only if you include more. I am a dual citizen with Spain and I included stories from working at a law firm in europe with lawyers from 7 european countries. I think it could help to highlight the benefits it has given you
