Declaration of Intention to Study Law

The Declaration of Intention to Study Law form is to be filed by all persons who have begun their law study at ABA-approved schools in Texas to pursue a Juris Doctorate degree and who intend to apply for licensure in Texas. Do not file this form until you have actually started law school. Do not submit a Declaration of Intent if you are not (or will not be) applying as a non-attorney graduate of an ABA-approved law school in Texas.

Individuals beginning an LLM program at an ABA-approved law school in Texas are not required to file a Declaration of Intention to Study Law.

 

Information Presented to First Year Law Students During 1L Orientation

First-semester law students ("entrants") must file their Declarations according to the deadlines set out in Rule 6(b). Failure to do so will result in a late fee as set out in Rule 18. Late filing Declarants may file at any time prior to or concurrent with the filing of their In-State Application.
