ABA Required Disclosures (Standards 504 and 509)
This information about the JD programs at the University of Chicago Law School is provided in accordance with American Bar Association Standards 504 and 509.
Standard 504 of the ABA requires that law schools advise each applicant as follows: "In addition to a bar examination, there are character, fitness, and other qualifications for admission to the bar in every U.S. jurisdiction. Applicants are encouraged to determine the requirements for any jurisdiction in which they intend to seek admission by contacting the jurisdiction. Addresses for all relevant agencies are available through the National Conference of Bar Examiners."
The University of Chicago Law School's Standard 509 Information Report (formerly known as the ABA-LSAC Reports) for the current year is available here.

Conditional Scholarships: The University of Chicago Law School does not award scholarships that are conditional on law school academic performance; therefore, we do not post an ABA "conditional scholarship retention worksheet." Under ABA Interpretation 509-4: "A conditional scholarship is any financial aid award, the retention of which is dependent upon the student maintaining a minimum grade point average or class standing, other than that ordinarily required to remain in good academic standing."
