Is Stanford Law the right fit for you?

If you’re open to learning law in an environment ideally suited to intensive, interdisciplinary education, we invite you to apply to SLS.

Although our admissions process is selective — only 7.26 percent of applicants are accepted — we encourage all who share our passion for innovation, collaboration and making a difference through law to apply.

SLS is a community characterized by excellence. Measured in GPA and LSAT percentiles, admitted students are high performers, and they grow into graduates of exceptional impact. We also value diversity in many forms: cultures, backgrounds, ambitions, perspectives. The combination makes for a collegial culture in which students and faculty inspire, challenge and learn from each other while they contribute to the future of law.

So, are you looking for a law school that will open pathways to opportunity, connect you with inspiring peers and mentors and focus your attention on the future — starting with your future? If your answer is yes, we’d like to learn more about you.

Why SLS?

Ingrid Price, JD ‘13:

“Most important to me about Stanford is the value the school places on education beyond the classroom that has allowed me to carve my own niche here.”

Steve Bunnell, JD ’86, Partners, O’Melveny & Meyers LLP:

“For me, going to Stanford meant picking the road less traveled, and I have been grateful ever since for making the choice I did. It was a wonderful educational and personal experience — one that continues to pay dividends more than 25 years later.”

Thomas R. Pack, JD ’12, Associate Attorney, Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher:

“The diversity of backgrounds and perspectives at SLS, combined with the school’s small size, fosters incredible personal and academic growth. I’ve never had such close friends with whom I vehemently disagree on so many things.”
