Top 50 Law School Application Opening Calendar - 2017/2018 Cycle


*Please note, schools can change these dates, and it is possible that when we called to ask them that they gave us the dates applications open rather than when they are accepted (although we were very careful to clearly articulate when can you submit), etc. But this should be highly accurate to the extent we can control it.
