  • Law School Admissions Test (LSAT)

    The Law School Admissions Test (LSAT) is required for admission. All applicants must submit an LSAT score.  LSATs are administered throughout the world.

    You should attach a resume to your application by uploading a Word document..  The resume should list your university and college education, your employment, volunteer activities and any awards you may have received.

    You should also attach a personal statement to your application by uploading a Word document.  The personal statement is your opportunity to tell the admission committee something about yourself which may not be available in other parts of the application.  Previous applicants have written about such subjects as a challenge they have overcome, an experience which led them to study law and a particular work or volunteer experience which relates to the study of law.

    Character and Fitness Questions

    In addition to a bar examination, there are character, fitness, and other qualifications for admission to the bar in every U.S. jurisdiction. Applicants are encouraged to determine the requirements for any jurisdiction in which they intend to seek admission by contacting that jurisdiction. Addresses for all relevant agencies are available through the National Conference of Bar Examiners website.   The application contains character and fitness questions.  These questions concern criminal charges, civil suits, employment discharge and academic disciplinary action.  You must answer these questions.  Any affirmative answer requires that a detailed explanation be attached to the application.
