Applying to Law School

The Law School Admission Council (LSAC) is the non-profit organization that organizes and administers all law school admission-related services in the United States. Their website is the single greatest resource for those interested in applying for law school.

The LSAC also administers the Credential Assembly service used by most law schools for application materials. There is a fee associated with this service separate from your application fees.

Applications to law school will include:

  • Official academic records and transcripts
  • LSAT scores and writing sample
  • Personal statement
  • Letters of recommendation

Admission to professional schools is competitive and typically based upon a combination of requirements that includes grade point average, program-specific admission tests, letters of recommendations and, in some cases, related experience outside the classroom. It is a student's responsibility to contact the professional school for current information regarding requirements and application deadlines.
