In addition to academic requirements, UNB Law School looks for promising personal characteristics in applicants. Admissions officers value honesty, maturity and a high level of motivation. The school's website notes that these and other "outstanding qualities" are considered minimum qualifications for applicants, as they show an ability to complete a demanding law school program.

These requirements are the minimum requirements, UNB notes. Students with a grade point average of at least 2.7 will be considered, but those with higher scores are more likely to be accepted. The school notes that among successful applicants, a 3.8 GPA is average.

UNB accepts applications until March 1 of each year, which is the deadline for submissions. The school admits 90 new students each year. In addition to setting minimum qualifications, UNB lists some circumstances under which admission is never granted. Students who have previously failed law school and those who have records of academic misconduct will not be granted admission.
