Our mission at CUNY School of Law is two-fold: we are a public law school that focuses solely on practicing law in the service of human needs; we also transform the practice of law so that it includes those it has excluded, marginalized, and oppressed. We believe the world needs to see the full range of human experience reflected and represented in the law.

Both our faculty and student body are diverse as many members of each join us directly from the communities they expect to serve as lawyers and reflect an incredible range of experiences as advocates, organizers, scholars and researchers, and leaders.

Although academic potential can be demonstrated through quantitative factors such as undergraduate record and LSAT scores, our selection committee also assesses the following:

  • Rigor of the areas of study and college attended
  • Quality of the student body
  • Grade point average and course selection trends
  • Employment during college
  • Individual accomplishments, backgrounds and experiences

Our admissions team is happy to answer any questions about whether CUNY Law is the right fit for you.
