Leave of Absence

If you have completed one year of Law School, you may request a leave of absence by submitting a written request to the Assistant Dean of Students Office. A meeting to discuss your request should be scheduled as soon as possible. Any extension to a leave of absence must be requested in writing and may be granted for good cause. Except under extraordinary circumstances, you are expected to complete your legal education within five years from the date of your admission.
