Admission Guidelines


Every year, the DLSU College of Law (COL) takes in a small but select group of applicants for its incoming class.  The applicants come from diverse backgrounds. Afternoon and evening schedules are also available for working students.  The diversity of personal, professional, and academic backgrounds brought in by the students contributes immensely to the richness of the law school experience.
