Rutgers Law School operates two campuses, in Camden and Newark.

Rutgers Law School's admission process involves a holistic review that takes into consideration a number of factors in evaluating whether a candidate would be suitable for admission and does not use numerical cutoffs. The key inquiry is whether the person is likely to succeed in law school, would benefit from a legal education here, and could contribute to the dynamic Rutgers Law School community. To make this determination, the law school considers the applicant's LSAT score(s) and academic record, personal statement, letters of recommendation, undergraduate and graduate institutions, choice of major, nature and difficulty of course selection, extracurricular activities, graduate work, contributions to the community, professional experience, obstacles overcome, and all supplemental materials. The law school makes no distinction between full- and part-time students, or between one campus and the other, in making its decision.

Upon acceptance and payment of the required seat deposit, students may enroll in either the full-time (day) program or the part-time (evening) program. Subject to class sequencing and classroom space, the administration will endeavor to assist students needing hybrid or part-time day schedules.
