Georgia State Law’s Admissions Committee will consider transfer applicants who have completed their first year of full-time study at another law school accredited by the American Bar Association. Applicants enrolled in a part-time program will be considered on a case-by-case basis upon completing the first year of study.
Academic performance and class ranking are important factors in our evaluation process. You also must possess credentials comparable to those of the class to which you are applying.
