Welcome to the Rutgers–Newark Law School Community! We are a school deeply proud of our reputation for academic excellence, the diversity of our faculty and student body, the accomplishments of our public interest programs, and our history of producing lawyers dedicated to social justice and excellence in the profession.

On this page, as the 2013-2014 academic year progresses you will find information about the academic program, orientation schedule, fall class schedule, tuition and related costs, links to campus information about various aspects of student life, and documentation you will need to complete as an entering student.

If you have any questions along the way, please do not hesitate to contact us. 

Once again, welcome to Rutgers School of Law–Newark!

Undergraduate Transcripts
Remember that we require that a copy of your transcript be sent to the Admissions Office directly from your undergraduate institution, showing receipt of your bachelor’s degree. The transcript must be received by the time you enter law school or within a short time thereafter, so please take the time over the summer to make sure that we receive it.

ABA Standards, Interpretation 502-1:
Before an admitted student registers, or within a reasonable time thereafter, a law school shall have on file the student’s official transcript showing receipt of a bachelor’s degree, if any, and all academic work undertaken.“Official transcript” means a transcript certified by the issuing school to the admitting school or delivered to the admitting school in a sealed envelope with seal intact. A copy supplied by the Law School Data Assembly Service is not an official transcript, even though it is adequate for preliminary determination of admission.
