Transfer students seeking admission to the Juris Doctor (J.D.) program with advanced standing may enter during the fall, spring, or summer semesters and choose full-time day, part-time day, or part-time evening attendance. Students who wish to change divisions post-matriculation may petition to do so once during their studies.
A student who has successfully completed two semesters at another law school may apply to transfer to the Law Center with advanced standing. The Admissions Committee evaluates transfer applications by considering class standing and performance in law school, the reasons for the requested transfer, and the number of vacancies available in the class.
Decisions on advanced standing will be made after acceptance but prior to registration for the first semester at the Law Center. Students from ABA-accredited law schools may be awarded advanced standing for up to 43 credits. Students from non-ABA-accredited law schools that are state-accredited may be awarded advanced standing for no more than 29 credits, representing one-third of the total credits required for graduation from Touro. In either case, only course grades of C+ or higher (or its equivalent) are transferable and only the credits, not the grades, are transferred. Click here for additional information.
Depending upon their point of entry, transfer students are generally eligible for academic honors and may compete for membership on the Touro Law Review and Moot Court Board.
