Honors Admissions Program

For the first-year law class beginning in Fall 2014, the Law School offers three streamlined admissions programs for select Alabama resident students in good standing at the Honors College at The University of Alabama (Tuscaloosa), the Honors College at Auburn University, and Birmingham-Southern College.  The specific criteria for these programs are subject to American Bar Association standards and approval, and, for that reason, vary.  The streamlined application process normally will result in an admission decision within approximately 24 hours of the Law School’s receipt of the completed application.  A personal statement and letters of recommendation are not required. 

Eligibility criteria for the three Honors Admissions Programs are as follows:

For Students of the Honors College at Auburn University

  • Resident of Alabama
  • Senior in good standing at the Honors College at Auburn University
  • LSAC Credential Assembly Service (CAS) Report
  • Cumulative undergraduate grade point average of at least 3.90 (according to CAS Report)
  • Completed Honors Admissions Program application
