Based on recently released national law school admissions data, the Fowler School of Law at Chapman University saw the largest gains in incoming class credentials of any U.S. law school from 2016 to 2019, with the median LSAT score increasing three full points, from 155 to 158, and the median undergraduate GPA increasing by a quarter point, from 3.24 to 3.49.


These huge gains in incoming class metrics have accompanied an increase in student body diversity, record employment for graduates, and dramatic growth in applications year over year. In addition, the Fowler School of Law’s success has attracted the support of donors who have given more than $4 million in gifts over the last three years, funding new facilities, scholarships, and programs.

“Our progress is a testament to the strength and diversity of our student body and the great work being done by the faculty and staff here at the law school,” said Fowler School of Law Dean Matthew Parlow. “I’m proud of the many ways our school continues to excel among law schools nationally.”
