Applications

Application Materials
Schools will have some unique questions, but most require the following:
  • Application form and personal statement
  • Application fee
  • Letters of Recommendation
  • Resume - this will be optional for some schools, but in any case do not neglect to answer application questions
  • Transcripts
  • Financial Aid Forms
LSAC Credentials Assembly Service (CAS)

The LSAC is the required central application service for all law schools. In addition to the application, you will send your transcripts and letters of recommendation to the LSAC for distribution to the schools to which you apply.

The LSAC also offers an Evaluation Service, where evaluators (professors, employers, etc.) can answer a series of questions designed to give admission offices information about your abilities beyond test scores and grades. This service is rarely required. Letters of recommendation are strongly preferred by most law schools.
