Windsor Law Admissions FAQ

Windsor Law’s Admission Committee considers seven different criteria when assessing an applicant’s file. The LSAT score and Grade Point Average are each only one of the seven criteria. We emphasize that no one single factor is solely determinative of admission to the law school. The Admissions Committee assesses applications in light of all seven criteria categories. The chief source of information about applicants is that which is provided by them in their Personal Profile. Applicants should take care to present a full and rounded view of themselves in their Personal Profile.

Windsor Law and Detroit Mercy School of Law have collaborated to create the Canadian & American Dual J.D. Program. Students in the Canadian & American Dual JD Program earn two law degrees in three years by comparative and interactive study each year on the campus of both the University of Detroit Mercy School of Law and the University of Windsor Faculty of Law. This program gives students a special opportunity to immerse themselves in two different legal cultures and to practice law in a globalized world. Today, the practice of law increasingly crosses borders and this unique program allows you to earn both an American JD and a Canadian JD in the same three years it takes most law students to receive one degree.

Current tuition and fee information is available at www.uwindsor.ca/cashiers to assist students with the cost of their legal education we award approximately $1.6 million in financial aid each year.
