Applications for LAE 2021 Now Being Accepted

The UP College of Law is pleased to announce that application for admission to its JD program is now open.

The deadline for LAE registration and submission of academic records and other requirements is on 31 January 2021. Due to the need to administer the admission process online and the limitations of new protocols, the Admissions Committee will make a first cut of the applicants based on their academic records and other relevant factors including extracurricular achievements and leadership potential, and those affecting diversity and territorial representation.

Those who will qualify to proceed with the application process will be invited to an online preparatory course which will require the use of a computer and internet connection. The prep course is both an orientation to law and an evaluative process of the applicant’s aptitude for law education. It will run for two (2) weeks beginning the third week of February 2021.

The preparatory course will be followed by the Law Aptitude Examination (LAE) and an interview, both to be administered online. The Admissions Committee reserves the right to make a second cut of the applicants prior to the LAE as the results of their performance in the prep course may warrant.

The cost of the application, availability of logistical support and scholarships, and other details are available at
