For your reading enjoyment, UNC School of Law has just published the spring/summer 2013 issue of Carolina Law magazine. In this issue we highlight our student externship program (p. 23). You can also learn about our newly reinvigorated moot court program (p.21).
Interested in learning more from current students and recent alumni about how our expanded curricular and extra-curricular activities have prepared them for a successful career? Read “Getting Practical” (p. 18).
We look forward to seeing you on campus in August, but in the meantime, we hope you enjoy this taste of what it will be like to be a Carolina Law student.

Carolina Law provides the kind of practical experiences that will prepare you to excel in the real-world practice of law.
Our first-year students build a strong foundation for legal learning in our innovative and intensive writing and research program. More than 25 newly developed transition-to-practice courses offer second- and third-year students hands-on learning in a broad range of practice areas, from bankruptcy to biotechnology.
Carolina Law's Externship Program enhances the traditional classroom experience by placing more than 150 students annually with practicing lawyers and judges in the community, the state and beyond. Student externs explore particular areas of practice, while developing key lawyering skills.

on being accepted to one of the nation's finest public university law
schools -- the University of North Carolina School of Law. We hope you
decide to join the exceptional faculty and the bright and accomplished
law students who will become our Class of 2016. Carolina has a deep
commitment to accessibility, and you will find yourself learning with
classmates whose varied life experiences will add tremendous value to
your time at Carolina Law.
My choice to enroll at Carolina Law 42 years ago was one of the best decisions of
my life. I was drawn to Carolina Law not only by the outstanding education it offered
but also, candidly, by its affordability. Graduates of Carolina who spend three years
learning the law from brilliant professors and talented classmates can go on to choose
any career path that seems promising, without a crushing burden of law school debt.

Applications must be electronically submitted (or postmarked) by March 1, 2013. Please note that CAS (formerly LSDAS) materials do not need to be received by this deadline, but because your file will remain incomplete until all materials are received, it is in an applicant's best interest to submit materials in a timely manner; incomplete files will not be reviewed by the admissions committee. All complete files will have an initial decision (admit, waitlist, deny) by May 1. We will continue to admit people from the waitlist throughout the course of the late spring and summer, including until the first day of orientation if necessary.
