Students & Admissions
Admission to the UPSA Law School is highly competitive and in every academic year, we are unfortunately forced to turn down a number of qualified students who wish to pursue their legal education at UPSA Law. Thus, in addition to any credentials presented, all shortlisted applicants to the UPSA Law School must submit to an entrance examination administered by the school from which the pool of selected candidates are admitted.
Our students enjoy a healthy and vibrant on-campus life and this is capped with the engaged intellectual community created by the good student-faculty relations. A life as a student at the UPSA Law School is thus deeply rewarding as testified to by our students.
