Access Category Statistics

The Faculty encourages applications from candidates with good academic potential whose backgrounds, experiences or qualities would allow them to make unique contributions to the law school community, the legal profession and society generally.

The Faculty encourages applications from members of historically disadvantaged or marginalized groups, from candidates who have endured some form of previous educational disadvantage and from mature candidates with impressive non-academic experience that demonstrates the skills necessary for legal studies.

Personal factors with supportive documentation to confirm the basis of the applicant's category claim may be given comparatively more weight than traditional measures of academic performance.
