The level of moral development of the students at the Law School of the San Ignacio de Loyola University in Lima-Peru was determined with the Defining Issues Test-Short Form (DIT-SF) questionnaire developed by J. Rest based on L. Kohlberg's evolutionary theory of moral development. The questionnaire was applied to 87 students, in a crosssection, corresponding to 70% females and 30% males. Moral development was analyzed by gender and socio-economic profile. The predominant level of moral development was the conventional or norm-maintaining schema, and the average "P" index of the sample was 6.4 with no statistical difference between males and females. None presented a post-conventional moral development characterized by the recognition of ethical principles with autonomy and responsibility, the level needed by civil servants and public officials to avoid corruption.
