If Willamette Law is one of your top choices for law school, we encourage you to apply to our Early Decision Program. Successful applicants can earn a $10,000 scholarship as well as be considered for other merit-based scholarship awards!

Applicants are evaluated using the same criteria as those who apply during the regular admissions process. 

How to Apply

Individuals must submit a complete JD application through the LSAC's Credential Assembly Service (CAS) (see Application Requirements), including the Early Decision Agreement section of the application, by December 1, 2023, at 11:59 pm. Early Decision applicants will be notified of a final admission decision by January 10th, if admitted, must submit a $600 seat deposit by January 18th. Admitted early decision students must withdraw any applications to other law schools.

You may opt-out from the Early Decision program to regular admission prior to December 20th. Please contact the Office of Admission by phone or email so we may confirm your decision to opt-out of the Early Decision program and move your file into the regular admission pool.
