Law in Pennsylvania

Law schools in Pennsylvania offer educational programs that lead to the achievement of a Juris Doctor (JD) degree. The JD program typically takes three years to complete following the receipt of a bachelor’s degree from an accredited college or university. The admission process is lengthy and acceptance is competitive. Program admission is based upon the student’s overall grade point average, essays and application, the Law School Admissions Test (LSAT) score, and in most Pennsylvania schools, an interview. Graduates of an accredited law program are prepared to take the national bar exam to become licensed in the state of their choice.
