Applying to Law School

LSAC: The Law School Admissions Council (LSAC) is the umbrella organization that orchestrates your law school application process. You can create a personal account at any point to even begin your research, and later use it to register for the LSAT, and the Credential Assembly Service (CAS) — a service that houses your transcripts, letters of recommendation, and allows electronic application processing for all ABA-approved law schools.

If you are having any difficulty, please contact an LSAC candidate service representatives by phone (215.968.1001) or e-mail (

Application Deadlines: It is in your best interest to apply to law school early, even though you will see rolling admissions with deadlines in the spring. As a general rule of thumb, apply in the fall: October is not too early to push send on your applications. Early applicants also have an advantage for being considered for scholarship or grant monies as well as a maximized change for admission.
