Juris Doctor law students are required to submit an electronic application form for the term in which the degree is to be awarded. The form is available at here and must be submitted by the deadline date listed on the Academic Calendar.

What You Need to Know About How To Access the Form
eForms are electronic forms that are completed and submitted through a web browser. You are advised to use the latest version of Java 7 as this is officially supported by the University and will have the most up-to-date security patches. To install the latest version, go to java.com in your preferred browser and click “Free Java Download.”

If you perform a manual installation of the Java plugin (i.e., you pick the version), make sure you download the Java plugin for the correct operating system and architecture (64-bit or 32-bit). For 64-bit machines, it is a good idea to install both the 64 and 32-bit versions as some operating systems contain browsers for both of these.

NOTE: you cannot install Java for the Chrome browser on a 64-bit Mac. This is a restriction of the Chrome browser, not our software eForms. Java 8 is not yet officially supported for eForms but still seems to work fine. If you encounter any errors or odd behavior with eForms and you have this version installed, please contact the Law Registrar to report it.
