We understand that choosing the right law school is an important and complex decision. We have included links on the navigation menu of this page to give you an introduction to our law school.

Law Student Checklists

These checklists have been developed for students as a calendar guide to assist you as you start your law school career at UC Irvine.

Admitted Student Campus Visits

Admitted Student tours are now available on a limited basis. To ensure the health and safety of our UCI Law community, we are currently able to welcome only the admitted student for a tour without guests. Members of Team Admissions & Aid will be available both before and after the tour for an appointment. If you are unable to find a date/time that works for you, we remain available for a Zoom or phone appointment to answer your questions.

SIR Deposits

Please be sure to pay the required SIR Deposit by the deadline(s) indicated in your “How to SIR” email that you received shortly after your admission to UCI Law. The SIR Deposit allows the law school to prepare administratively for your arrival and opens other items, such as the housing application, for you to complete. Please be aware that you should submit the SIR Deposit by the deadline provided to you, or if your deadline is after April 15 at least 48 hours before the housing deadline to allow time for Housing to receive your SIR record.

Scholarship Reconsideration

If you are seeking reconsideration of your current UCI Law Scholarship from the Scholarship Committee, please submit your request through this portal following all directions. You will be able to log in using the e-mail account entered with your original School of Law application. The password is your 9 character LSAC account #, include the “L” when the typing the number (eg. L12345678). If you would like a decision from the Scholarship Committee prior to the April 15 SIR Deposit deadline, this form must be complete and submitted by March 31. Requests received after March 31 will be considered, but the committee cannot guarantee a disposition prior to April 15. Please remember, scholarship funds are limited.
