The Admissions Office welcomes inquiries from students who wish to transfer from their current ABA-accredited law school to UC Hastings.

Transfer students enjoy the same opportunities as current rising 2Ls. These opportunities include participating in the Career Development Office’s Early Interview Program, writing on to one of the law school’s nine journals, and trying out for one of the College’s top-ranked Moot Court teams after taking Appellate Advocacy in the Fall semester.


“Transferring to UC Hastings after my 1L year was the best decision for me because it opened up a lot of opportunities that aligned more with my interests after having a year under my belt.”


“If your goal is to produce quality work product when you join a firm…UC Hastings’ practical skills classes are a must.”

Prospective transfer applicants are encouraged to register for a Transfer Admissions webcast here. Students are also welcome to make an appointment with a member of the Admissions staff.
