Application Process

Applications for law schools general consist of five parts: academic record, LSAT score, resume, personal statement, and letters of recommendation.  Fortunately, the Law School Admissions Council (LSAC) makes the process simple and streamlined by aggregating all application functions on their website. You will register with LSAC and the Credential Assembly Service.  Following their instructions, you will print a Transcript Request Form for each school you have attended and have the registrar forward an official transcript directly to LSAC. Letters of Recommendation (LORs) are collected and processed at LSAC as well. When you are ready to apply, you will access applications there and submit them electronically.

Workshops about the application process and current state of law school admissions are held in the spring, summer and early fall. Check the Workshop calendar for dates and registration information.  You may also consult the current handout about the application process. Registration for workshops is done online and can be accessed here
