Beginning in 2016, incoming students at Toledo Law were given the opportunity to choose when they begin their law school course work: January or August. 


With our January start, admitted students take part in an expedited law school orientation, enhanced academic support options, and are eligible for our generous merit-based scholarship program. After completing their first semester in the January start program, students have the option of taking classes year round.

Students in the January start program can choose a traditional three-year schedule, or can schedule course work at their own part-time pace.

Admission Process

To apply for our January start program, applicants must submit a law school application by November 15. November LSAT scores will be accepted. A full list of application requirements is available on our Apply page.
