The Dean's List was begun at the Columbus School of Law in the 2012-2013 academic year. It recognizes students based on their academic performance over the preceding semester. First year students are recognized at the end of their first year.

Dean's List honorees have placed in the top third of their division/class in terms of grade point average (GPA) for the semester (full year cumulative GPA for first year students). Fall semester GPAs include grades earned in the preceding Summer semester.
