The law school accepts a limited number of transfer students who have completed one full-time year at another ABA-approved law school. UNM School of Law has more transfer applicants each year than we are able to admit. Transfer applicants are considered for admission only if they:
The deadline for submitting transfer applications is June 15th. The deadline for completing a transfer application file is July 15th.
If you are admitted with advanced standing to the UNM law program, your right to continue in that program depends entirely on work done at UNM. Transfer students are ineligible for certain prizes and awards given by the law school and are not ranked academically.
Credits earned at other law schools that do not meet their minimum graduation requirements are not acceptable for transfer credit.
Students who have completed their second full-time year at another ABA-approved law school and who wish to receive their degree from that school, but spend either one or both semesters of their final year at The University of New Mexico School of Law, may be considered for admission as visiting students. The deadline for filing visiting applications is June 15, and the deadline for the completion of the visiting application is July 15.
Visiting students receive financial aid from their own law school, not UNM, and may not enroll in courses which are over-subscribed by regular law school students. They may participate in on-campus interviews only if space is available.
For international law students whose home institutions have exchange agreements with the University of New Mexico, please review the Visiting International Law Students section of UNM’s International Law Programs.
