Application for Admission
What You Can Do to Get Ready?
What can you do to apply to LMU Law? We have provided the following checklist to help you with your application:
1. Complete the application for admission. (Select the link to apply electronically.)
Currently, the application processing fee is waived.
If you would prefer to complete a physical (paper) application than apply online, then you may download the following documents:
Applications for classes starting in Fall (August) 2014 will be accepted through July 15, 2014.
2. Register to take the Law School Admission Test (LSAT).
The LSAT is offered four times each year (February, June, October and December) at various testing centers throughout the country, including LMU-DSOL. You can register for the LSAT through the Law School Admission Council’s (LSAC) website – http://www.lsac.org/jd/lsat/test-dates-deadlines.asp
Be mindful there are specific deadlines and fees to apply to take the LSAT.
Also, make sure you indicate “Yes” to the question concerning whether to report your scores to non-ABA accredited schools.
LMU-Duncan School of Law will not accept scores more than five (5) years old.
3. Subscribe to the LSAC’s Credential Assembly Service (CAS).
The CAS is a centralized internet repository website where prospective law school students and applicants can submit academic information and other pertinent items for submission to law schools. You can register for the CAS through the LSAC’s website – http://www.lsac.org/jd/applying-to-law-school/cas.asp
4. Secure two letters of recommendation.
The letters can be sent either directly to LMU-DSOL’s Office of Admissions or to the LSAC to be included as part CAS Report. Note: LSAC charges a separate fee to send to letters of recommendation as part of its CAS Report.
5. Prepare a personal statement.
Your personal statement should address future goals with respect to obtaining a legal education and applying that knowledge to career aspirations.
If offered admission, official transcripts for each undergraduate college of university attended must be received by the LMU-DSOL Office of Admissions prior to Orientation. No student will be permitted to matriculate until all transcripts are received.
Note: At least one transcript must indicate the award of a bachelor’s degree from an accredited institution.
For additional information, please contact the LMU-DSOL Office of Admissions either through email at law.admissions@LMUnet.edu or by calling 865.545.5303.
