Transfer students must go through the same steps as first-year law students in applying for admission to Phoenix School of Law (PhoenixLaw). In addition, students wishing to transfer to PhoenixLaw must submit, with their application, a letter of good standing and law school transcript. Transfer credits are accepted from ABA accredited law schools only. Applicants must have obtained all transfer credits within the four academic years prior to matriculation at PhoenixLaw. Only grades with a C or better are eligible to transfer. The Associate Dean of Academic Affairs has the right to refuse credit for classes previously taken at other law schools. Once admitted, a transfer student must contact the Office of Records & Registration to determine what classes will transfer and to determine registration for PhoenixLaw classes.
Students wishing to have visiting status at PhoenixLaw should complete and submit the standard application online. Students wishing to visit should provide PhoenixLaw with a letter of good standing from their current law school, written permission from their law school to attend PhoenixLaw, copy of your LSDAS report, and official transcripts from all previously attended law schools. Check the Visiting student box on the application.
Once accepted as a Visiting Student, you will work with the Office of Records & Registration for registration of classes, etc.
Mature persons with an adequate background of experience of study, who have special need for a limited acquaintance with a field of law, may, with the permission of the Associate Dean of Academic Affairs, enroll in one or more classes at PhoenixLaw. Members of the bar may also enroll in one or more classes with the permission of the Associate Dean of Academic Affairs. Any person wishing to audit courses must submit an application to the Associate Dean of Academic Affairs with an accompanying statement of their situation and needs (Audit petition forms are available). Unless the applicant seeks admission as a regular student, her/his status and privileges are those of an auditor, and s/he will not receive credit for attendance or work done. If an applicant later seeks admission as a regular student, s/he will not receive credit for audited classes.
The auditing student application and statement is reviewed by the Associate Dean of Academic Affairs and a decision is made within a reasonable time.
