To apply for admission to the JD Program, an applicant educated at an institution outside of the U.S. must have earned or expect to earn the equivalent of a U.S. Bachelor's degree. In addition, all international applicants must take the Law School Admissions Test (LSAT) exam. The Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) is NOT required.
Graduates of foreign institutions must have their academic credentials evaluated by an appropriate service. We recommend that applicants use the JD Credential Assembly Service offered by LSAC. To use the JD CAS, log in to your LSAC account and follow the instructions for registering for the service. Be sure to print out a Transcript Request form for each institution and send it promptly. More time is usually required to receive foreign transcripts.
Letters of recommendation should be also be submitted and processed through LSAC.
Questions about the JD CAS Service can be directed to LSAC at 215.968.1001, or LSACINFO@LSAC.org.
