Summary: Due to recent changes in American Bar Association rules, the University of Hawaii has announced it will accept a small number of students who have not taken the LSAT.

According to KHON2.com, a new pilot program is being launched at the University of Hawaii’s William S. Richardson School of Law. The program will take applications from students even if they have not taken the LSAT, the Law School Admission Test.

The law school has been named one of the top five bargains in the country for a legal education.

The program was created in light of recent changes to American Bar Association admission rules regarding the LSAT. The program will be open to “highly qualified” new graduates from the University of Hawaii Manoa, as well as recent alumni.

To be eligible for admission to the “Direct Admission Program,” students must meet the following criteria: 1) they have not taken the LSAT and will not take the June 2015 LSAT; 2) they graduated, or will graduate, from the University of Hawaii Manoa between August 2014 and August 2015; 3) their cumulative GPA was at least a 3.5 in six semesters of undergraduate coursework at the University of Hawaii Manoa; and 4) they scored at or above the 85th percentile on the SAT or the ACT.

Last summer, training for 15 Pacific Islands judges was held at the law school.

Additionally, the school will not accept more than nine students into the program. Those interested in enrolling in the program must email the admissions director by May 22 to discuss the process. According to University of Hawaii News, the law school enrolled its largest class ever in the fall, the opposite of what most law schools across the country are reporting.
