Prerequisites for the Juris Doctor

Are the Law and Society major or the Business Law major pre-requisites for the Juris Doctor (JD)?

The criteria for selection in to the UWA JD via the standard pathway are:

  • a UWA bachelor's degree or equivalent as recognised by the Faculty; and
  • a Grade Point Average (GPA) of at least 5.5 (out of 7.0), or equivalent, across all completed tertiary studies; and
  • a Law School Admissions Test (LSAT) score from an LSAT test taken within 5 years prior to applying for admission.

Applications will be ranked based upon the GPA and LSAT score, weighted equally. Admission will be awarded to the highest ranked applicants who fall within the intake quota for that year.
