The William S. Richardson School of Law will welcome many members of the incoming class of 2015-16 at Admitted Students Day on Monday, March 9.  Current law students will offer tours of the Law School, which is wrapped around a plant-filled, open-air courtyard.  

Cyrelle White, financial aid manager, will guide incoming students through available funding to offset tuition costs. Admissions Director Elisabeth Steele Hutchison will welcome attendees to a law school that is one of the 100 best in the country, according to U.S. News & World Report.  “This is a wonderful opportunity for admitted students to tour the Law School and Law Library, sit in on a first-year class, meet our faculty and students, and get to know us a little better,” said Hutchison.

With one of the best records for student and faculty diversity in the country, as well as one of the lowest levels of student debt at graduation, the Richardson Law School is truly one-of-kind, notes Dean Avi Soifer.  “We are a unique community,” says Soifer, pointing to ways in which students and faculty are treated like family, such as the throwing of an annual Halloween party for student parents and their keiki.

This year’s Admitted Students Day will not include the entire incoming 1L class. With new rolling admissions, potential students may continue to send in applications through Tuesday, July 7.  This will offer applicants the opportunity to take the June 2015 LSAT and still be eligible for admission.

The June 2015 LSAT will be administered in Hawai‘i on Monday, June 8, with Friday, May 1, as the deadline to register for it. (There is a late registration date of Wednesday, May 13, for an additional fee.) For more details, go to
