SMU Dedman School of Law enjoys a national and international reputation of distinction and is among the most competitive law schools in the country in admissions. Our students are immersed in a rich curriculum and obtain real-world experience through internship programs, academic externships, and public service placements. As a part of SMU's strong tradition of training lawyers to practice in a global environment, students have an opportunity to study abroad at the Oxford Summer Program at University College in Oxford.
We offer a full-time
, three-year J.D. program and a part-time
, four-year J.D. program. All students must earn a minimum of 87 hours to complete the J.D. degree. Students in the part-time program take the same required courses as the full-time program. All entering law students must begin during the fall semester in August.
