Juris Doctor (JD) Admissions

Pepperdine School of Law seeks to enroll students who demonstrate outstanding academic and professional promise, a commitment to its Christian mission,  and whose background, life experiences, and perspectives have shaped their character and ability to contribute uniquely to its Christian mission, enrichment of its educational environment, and its culture of belonging. 

Our admissions committee members evaluate more than just academic credentials, such as test scores and grade point averages; they consider the whole person, shaped by faith, adversities overcome, lessons learned, perspectives, and any other significant life experiences.

Students of all backgrounds, life experiences, and perspectives are encouraged to apply. Learn more about our Juris Doctor degree program here, including information about admissions, tuition, financial aid, and more.
