Admission to the B.A./J.D. Program

Application to the B.A./J.D. Program

Students entering Rutgers University-Camden from high school should apply to the program after they have been admitted to Rutgers-Camden.

For students already enrolled at Rutgers-Camden and seeking admission after their first year: apply by September 15 of the sophomore year.

If you would like to apply to the program or ask any questions, you should contact Professor Timothy Martin, the coordinator for the B.A./J.D. program for the Camden College of Arts and Sciences. 

Application to Rutgers Law School in Camden

Once enrolled in the Camden College of Arts and Sciences, students should meet with Professor Timothy Martin, the coordinator for the B.A./J.D. program for the College of Arts and Sciences. To enhance their opportunity for acceptance, dual-degree students should apply to Rutgers Law School in Camden for early admission by January 15 of their junior year, and must complete the application process required of all applicants to the law school. Students must take the Law School Admission Test (LSAT) by no later than December of their junior year and should achieve a score equal to or exceeding the median LSAT score achieved by students entering the law school in the preceding year. The law school will admit students who achieve this score and meet all other admissions requirements; however, failure to achieve the requisite LSAT score will not automatically result in denial of admission to the law school. In addition, students must present a minimum GPA of 3.4 or its equivalent at the end of their fifth semester at Rutgers-Camden. At least three-fourths of the Camden College of Arts and Sciences requirements for the bachelor's degree must be completed before matriculation at the law school. The law school may require a personal interview of the applicant.

Applicants to Rutgers Law School in Camden from the dual-degree program should present evidence of strong analytical and writing skills. To ensure that they have had opportunities for research, seminar, and/or independent study experiences expected of applicants to the law school, students should complete (1) at least two writing courses beyond basic first-year writing and (2) an advanced-level seminar or independent study in their major field of study no later than their junior year. Additionally, it is recommended that their prelaw courses include a basic course in each of the American Constitution or system of government, logic, and statistics, and that they be proficient in computer use, including at a minimum word processing, email, and internet research.

Rutgers Law School in Camden reserves the right to deny admission to any person who is not deemed of good character and/or has been charged with, arrested for, or convicted of the violation of any law (other than minor traffic violations), dismissed, expelled, suspended, or disciplined within Rutgers University or elsewhere for academic or any other reasons.
