Please apply online through the Law School Admission Council (LSAC) website at www.lsac.org. This is the required method of application as it allows our admissions committee to assemble your application efficiently and return a decision to you quickly. The regular admission application (for both full-time and part-time) deadline is May 1, 2015. The early decision appilcation deadline is November 15, 2014.
EARLY DECISION APPLICATION
Campbell Law offers a non-binding early decision application option. This application is most appropriate for candidates who have concluded that Campbell Law is their first choice for law school. Candidates who apply through the early decision application process may apply to other law schools, but may not have more than one binding early decision application pending simultaneously. If admitted to Campbell Law, early decision candidates are not required to withdraw their applications at other law schools. Candidates must submit and/or complete the application no later than November 15, 2014. Campbell Law will notify early decision candidates about their status no later than December 15, 2014. Some early decision candidates may be held for review in the regular cycle. Candidates who are held for consideration in the regular cycle will no longer be bound by the terms of the early decision agreement.
Application instructions, requirements and deadlines are the same for Campbell FLEX applicants as they are for full-time applicants. There is, however, a specific application that may be selected on LSAC's website if you are applying for Campbell FLEX.
There is no application fee for 1L applications for Fall 2015.
All applicants must register with the Law School Admission Council's Credential Assembly Service (CAS). Transcripts and letters of recommendation (2) should be sent directly to CAS. Registration is valid for five (5) years from the date the LSAT/CAS registration form is processed. Applicants must ensure undergraduate transcripts from each college, university or high school dual-enrollment program attended are on file at CAS. Please do not send transcripts to the law school.
Applicants must submit a personal statement with their application. The personal statement should be viewed as your interview on paper. It gives us an opportunity to get to know you on a more personal level. Additionally, it gives the applicant an opportunity to explore fit, and convey to the committee why they feel that Campbell Law is an ideal place to study the law. You will be limited to three pages, double-spaced, with a 12-point font.
Applicants must submit a resume along with the application. Campbell Law allows applicants unlimited space on the resume to share your experiences.
THE IMPORTANCE OF FULL DISCLOSURE
Campbell Law School requires complete candor and honesty from all applicants in their completed law school application form. Admission to Campbell Law is contingent upon the accuracy of information required as part of the application process.
Failure to provide required information, or misrepresentation of such information, can result in withdrawal of an offer of admission prior to matriculation, dismissal or suspension from the law school after matriculation, rescission of the student's degree after graduation, and/or forfeiture of all fees and charges paid and academic credit earned.
Any such failure to disclose or misrepresentation will be reported to the Board of Law examiners for misconduct investigation, and to the Law School Admission Council Misconduct and Irregularities in the Admission Process Subcommittee.
Standard 504 - In addition to a bar examination, there are character, fitness, and other qualifications for admission to the bar in every U.S. jurisdiction. Applicants are encouraged to determine the requirements for any jurisdiction in which they intend to seek admission by contacting the jurisdiction. Addresses for all relevant agencies are availabable through the National Conference of Bar Examiners.
CHARACTER AND FITNESS INSTRUCTIONS
Required disclosures DO include traffic offenses, i.e. DUI/DWI offenses, speeding, improper
equipment, expired registration or inspection tags, failure to maintain proof of insurance,
failure to wear a seat belt, etc. Other than alcohol related traffic offenses, if the traffic offense
occurred more than 5 years ago, you will most likely be unable to acquire an official record of
the incident and, therefore, the official record will not be required (the statement would
suffice in that case).
Required disclosures do NOT include expunged or sealed violations or parking tickets.
If the answer to any of the character and fitness questions (on the electronic application) is “Yes,” attach a full statement, supplying ALL of the following information for each affirmative response.
(a) a statement identifying the original charge(s), citation(s), or alleged offense(s);
(b) the organization, institution, entity, or jurisdiction with authority over the matter (E.g., this might
be the county where the offense occurred or the name and address of the school that disciplined
(c) the date(s) of the incident(s) and the date(s) of any arrest(s), charge(s), or proceeding(s);
(d) copies of ALL official records (including all DMV, arrest records, and/or court records) that pertain
to each incident;
(e) a complete and detailed description of the facts and circumstances surrounding or giving rise to
each incident or charge;
(f) the current status of the matter(s); and
(g) the ultimate disposition or outcome, including, but not necessarily limited to, any reduced
charges, lesser included offenses, dismissals, prayers for judgment continued, pleas, probation
orders, fines, court costs, penalties, community service requirements, or other consequences.
Again, if you have any question as to whether a given incident should be disclosed, you should opt
for full disclosure. If attached statements do not supply all of the information listed above, your
application will not be processed. Note that for traffic-related matters, a DMV record will not by itself
be sufficient to constitute a full statement because the record does not include all of the above-listed
