Deanís or College Certification Forms
These are forms that are required as part of the application file of some law schools. This form must be filled out by a Dean or other sanctioned official in your college. This individual must fill out the form regardless of whether they have personal knowledge of you as a candidate. Not all law schools do require this form as part of their application, you probably will not come across one if you are not applying to any East Coast law schools.
Students or Alums of the College of LAS:
In the College of LAS, the certification forms are processed by the pre-law advisor. If you are a current student you can simply put the form in an envelope and bring it to the LAS Advising Center and ask that it be put in the pre-law advisorís mailbox. Please be sure to include your UIN. If you are no longer on campus, please send the forms, along with a note that has your UIN as well as your graduation year and term on it, to:
Adekemi Faleti, Pre-Law Advisor
College of LAS (MC 228)
309 University Hall
601 South Morgan Street
Chicago, IL 60607
Students or Alums of other colleges:
Your form must be filled out by an official from your college. Please contact your UIC College office to find out whom the forms should be directed to. The LAS pre-law advisor does not have access to the records of non-LAS students, and is therefore not the correct person to submit these forms to.
Please keep in mind that we all have multiple obligations; therefore, if you drop off the form the day before a deadline, please do not expect it to be processed by that deadline. Deanís Forms may take 1 to 2 weeks to get processed. Please plan accordingly!
