UCLA School of Law accepts non-matriculating students.  Students from law schools that are only state-approved are not eligible for admission. The decision to accept non-matriculating students is at the discretion of the school. Non-matriculating students are required to pay all the UCLA School of Law fees and tuition but will receive their law degree from their school of origin.

Applicants must submit the following directly to UCLA School of Law:

  4. Official transcripts of law school grades sent directly to LSAC or to UCLA School of Law.
  5. Two letters of recommendation (no more than two) submitted through the LSAC Letter of Recommendation Service or mailed directly to the Law School, are required.  Evaluations through the new LSAC Evaluation Service are not required; however, we will accept one evaluation. One letter must be from a law school faculty member familiar with the applicant's academic performance​. 
  6. Law school report (including LSAT score and undergraduate transcripts) sent directly from the Law School Admission Council.
  7. Letter of good standing from current law school dean or registrar which will include permission to register as a visiting student.
