Dean Certifications

Dean Certifications

Ethical conduct and good judgment are essential to the legal profession. Many law schools require that applicants provide a Dean Certification of their undergraduate or graduate standing (academic standing, academic code, disciplinary code standing). 

Dean Certifications are forms admission committees would send to applicants during the application process. Some admission committees may simply ask for a letter from an appropriate official at Brown. When you receive a Dean Certification form, complete only your portion and send it to Kathy Toro-Ibanez via email. When we return to campus you can resume using one of the mailing methods below. Please provide your email address and phone number as well as any relevant details and contact information for the school where we should send the completed form. 

If you believe you were the subject of any institutional action during your studies at Brown, provide a description of the instance as you contact Kathy Toro-Ibanez. We encourage you to check your record before applying to law school. You will find more information about institutional action in our Law School Applicant Guide. Please allow between 10 days and 2 weeks for the processing and mailing of the completed forms. We cannot expedite the process.

 

During Brown's work away from campus, please don't send forms by mail.
