Register for Admitted Students Weekend

Please join us for Admitted Students Weekend, March 27-28, 2015. This will be a wonderful opportunity to meet future classmates and faculty, learn more about the KU Law experience, and explore Lawrence, Kansas.



Class of 2018 Facebook Group

We hope you will join the Class of 2018 Facebook Group. We set it up especially for you and your fellow admitted students. It should be a great way to connect with some of your future classmates before you get to law school. It's a closed group, and only members of the admitted class will be allowed to join.

We also encourage you to become a fan of the KU Law Facebook page, to consider following us on Twitter and Instagram, and to become a regular reader of the KU Law Blog. We use these outlets to share school news, photos, blog entries and more.

Duty to Update

It is your duty to notify the Office of Admissions if there are any changes in the answers you submitted on your application, specifically any character and fitness issues.

Character & Fitness Disclosure Requirement

On the application for admission, KU Law requires applicants to disclose information related to the character and fitness necessary to practice law, including criminal conduct. (See Question 28 on the application for admission for the full scope of the question.)

If you have not fully disclosed such conduct, you should amend your application as soon as possible. To amend, submit a signed letter to Director of Student Counseling, Leah Terranova, explaining the conduct and the reason that you did not initially disclose it on your original application. The signed letter will be added to your law school application as an amendment.

This duty to disclose is a continuous duty — meaning that you must notify the law school if you engage in conduct covered in the Character & Fitness question anytime after the submission of your application, including while you are a law student.

Admission to the bar in all states involves character, fitness and other qualifications. Applicants are encouraged to determine what those requirements are in the state(s) in which they intend to practice by consulting the website of the National Conference of Bar Examiners. Should you need clarification about whether or not you have a duty to report your situation, please see Leah Terranova or Associate Dean for Academic Affairs Melanie Wilson.
