UWA Students who have completed 48 points in their undergraduate degree at UWA can now apply to be considered for a Direct Pathway to the postgraduate law qualification, the Juris Doctor.

This means that once you have completed your bachelor’s degree with the required final UWA GPA, you will be eligible for a guaranteed place into the postgraduate JD without having to sit the Law School Admissions Test (LSAT).

We encourage all eligible students who are interested in pursuing the JD after their bachelor’s degree to complete and submit the application below by the deadline for Semester 1: 18 February 2018 (first round) and 11 March 2018 (second round).

Successful students will be notified in writing to their UWA student email account week commencing 12 March 2018 (first round) and 26 March (second round).

There will be no change to your current UWA course or enrolment, the Direct Pathway will simply be added to your record and viewable via studentConnect.

By submitting an application, it may not guarantee a direct place and applications will be ranked on academic achievement in the first instance where required - please ensure that you read the FAQs before submitting your application.
