How to Apply

New students applying to the joint degree programs apply only to the Law School, which means taking the LSAT and submitting Suffolk Law’s online application through LSAC.org. Joint degree applicants should indicate their desire to apply to the joint degree program and include a second essay that specifically mentions the joint degree. In many cases, you will not need to take the GMAT or GRE. However, the Graduate Admission Office may request additional standardized testing for applicants in the MSIE and MSF programs.
