Thank you for your interest in Cleveland-Marshall College of Law!
While admission to Cleveland-Marshall is competitive, it need not be intimidating. The admissions committee reviews all applications with care and sensitivity, taking into consideration academic performance, LSAT scores, work and life experience, and readiness for the rigors of legal education. At Cleveland-Marshall, we are committed to enrolling academically talented and diverse students. In doing so, we recognize and embrace that academic talent and diversity can be identified in many interesting and exciting ways.
Your undergraduate grades and LSAT results are the most significant factors in our admission decision; however, we are interested in the real people behind those factors and their potential contributions to Cleveland-Marshall and the legal community. Our admission policies advance the law school’s mission, “[t]o provide society with lawyers and other professionals thoroughly educated in the law and committed to their ethical responsibilities, and to develop a deeper understanding of the law and its effect on societal values, in order to help our communities, people, and systems of justice flourish.”
The College of Law promotes equal educational opportunity for persons of every race, ethnicity, religion, national origin, gender, age, handicap or disability, sexual orientation, and veteran status.
