    Dwayne O. Andreas School of Law

    At Barry University School of Law, we make a commitment to excellence each day. Preparing our graduates to become responsible, ethical, and compassionate lawyers is the ultimate goal.

    The School of Law promotes legal education at its best. In addition to a broad range of course offerings, students have the opportunity to experience the 'law-in-action' concept. Clinical programs, law review, moot court and mock trial competitions allow students to take learning one step further as they experience various facets of law practice.

    The School of Law's growing success results from the combined efforts of a mission-oriented faculty, administrative team, and staff. In the end, our real success is measured by the accomplishments of our students and alumni who have the greatest vested interest in our future.

    We have established an outstanding law school in Central Florida. Join us as we continue to build on that success.

      Admissions Testing
      The Law School Admissions Test (LSAT) is administered four times a year by Law Services in cooperation with leading law schools throughout the country. Information concerning registration for the Law School Admission Test can be obtained from:

      Law School Admissions Services
      P.O. Box 2000, 661 Penn Street
      Newtown, PA 18940-0998
      215-968-1001
      www.lsac.org

      Information regarding registration materials for the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) can be obtained from the:

      Admissions Policies / Decisions
      The Admissions Committee acts on all admissions requests following receipt of a completed application and a non-refundable application fee of $50.00.

      The LSAT is designed to measure some of the mental and academic abilities that are needed for successful law study. Within limits, it provides a reasonable assessment of these factors. Similarly, undergraduate grades are a significant indicator of potential success in law school. In addition to being one measure of academic ability, a strong scholastic record may indicate the level of a student's perseverance, motivation, and maturity.

      Applicants will be accepted for admission to the School of Law if they are of good character and have LSAT scores and GPAs which indicate a likelihood for academic success. This statement applies to those applicants who apply in a timely manner before the class has been filled.

      Applicants are notified in writing of all decisions pertinent to their applications taken by the Admissions Committee. The Committee meets frequently, so decisions are made promptly after receipt of all required admissions documents. Following written notification of acceptance as a student, each degree candidate should send in the required seat deposit, and all official undergraduate transcripts.

        Barry University Law Review

        Barry University Law Review is a scholarly law journal edited and published annually by students of the School of Law. Issues of the Law Review typically contain articles of current legal interest authored by law professors, judges, practitioners, and student members. Law students perform all editing on articles contained in the journal.

        As part of the curriculum of the Law School, students receive academic credit for their work on the Law Review. Ordinarily, only top law students are selected to be members of the Law Review staff. Law firms, judges, and legal scholars recognize the scholarly achievement and hard work required of those students as the pinnacle of a law student's resume. Many times each year the highest courts in America are persuaded by and in fact quote articles published in law reviews.
