The LSAC

After you meet with the pre-law adviser, one of the first things you will want to do is create a LSAC account. This will provide you with access to the entire law school admission process and allow you to register for the LSAT. 

The LSAC
The Law School Admission Council (LSAC) is a nonprofit corporation that facilitates the admissions process for law school applicants worldwide. LSAC is comprised of the 195 American Bar Association approved law schools in the U.S. and 15 Canadian law schools. The LSAC administers the Law School Admission Test (LSAT) as well as the applications of students to law schools. All students must register for the LSAT through LSAC. All American Bar Association approved law schools are LSAC members. Most U.S. accredited law schools use the LSAC’s Credential Assembly Service as a clearinghouse for applicants to complete the law school application process. Applicants must send all of their transcripts, letters of recommendation, and evaluations to LSAC. The LSAC then creates a report that translates your coursework and grades into a standardized format, along with your LSAT scores and writing sample, and sends the reports to the schools to which you are applying. Visit the , to check if your individual law school requires the LSAC services.

Applicants should register and create an account with the Credential Assembly Service (CAS) ​four to six weeks before the law school application deadline; this allows sufficient time for CAS to process your information. The registration fee for the Credential Assembly Service is $155 and an additional $21 for each application you submit. After registration, your account will remain active for five years. Students with extreme financial need can apply for a fee waiver for LSAC and for the LSAT.  ​
