Application Deadlines

Due to the uncertainties caused by the pandemic, we understand that many students are making decisions later than usual so we will continue to accept applications for the Fall 2020 semester until August 12, 2020. At this time, Drake is offering our entering students the option to enroll in person (with a mix of on campus and online classes) or remotely for the fall semester.

The application for Spring 2021 will be available beginning August 3, 2020. The priority deadline for spring admission is November 1st.

Office staff can be reached for questions via phone, 515-271-2782, or email,


Drake Law School provides a different kind of legal education. With an excellent foundation in legal theory, our students roll up their sleeves and put theory into action.

Skills training is integrated into coursework by our faculty—all of whom have actually practiced law—and reinforced through our one-of-a-kind trial practicum, clinics, and internships.

As the only law school in the capital city of Des Moines, our students have unique opportunities to gain experience in the government, business, state and federal courts, the legal sector, and more.
