TRANSFERRING

I am a student at a law school that has not been approved by the American Bar Association (ABA); may I apply to transfer to the UH Law School?
No. We do not accept transfer applications from students from non-ABA approved law schools. Please see the American Bar Association website for a list of ABA-approved law schools. However, you may apply as a first-year student.

I am a part-time student at another ABA-approved program. May I apply to transfer to the full-time or part-time program?
Yes. You may apply to either program if you have successfully completed the full first-year curriculum at another law school approved by the American Bar Association (ABA). See Transfer & Visiting Students.

May I transfer credits for law courses taken in other countries? May I transfer from a foreign law school to the Law School?
No. You may not transfer credits you earned at a law school outside the United States to the UH Law School. If you have taken law classes abroad, you will need to apply to the Law School as a first-year student.
