Applications for first year, foreign lawyer and transfer applicants are available only through the Law School Admission Council online electronic application service at www.lsac.org. Applications are sent directly to the law school from LSAC electronically and in printed form. There are separate applications for spring and fall transfers. First–year students and foreign lawyers are admitted in the fall only. Once you have completed your electronic application, you must "release" it before it will be transmitted to the law school.
The online application is compliant with Section 508 Standards for Web Accessibility
In addition to the application and CAS report (LSAT score, transcripts, and letters of recommendation), each applicant must pay a $65 application fee, and complete the certification letter.

After you complete the online transaction, you will receive a confirmation email. Print out the email and mail it with the certification letter (see link below) to the law school. This is proof you have paid your fee. It does not automatically update in our system. Law Services does NOT collect our application fee and we cannot accept personal checks or money orders. It must be paid through this link.

If you have received a fee waiver for the LSAT from Law Services, please send a copy of the waiver with the certification letter and your fee will be automatically waived. Applicants currently participating in AmeriCorps, Teach for America, Peace Corps, Vista, City Year or other similar programs or members of the U.S. Armed Forces will automatically be granted a fee waiver. Please provide proof of your affiliation with any of these organizations with your certification letter (an appointment letter, or pay stub, for example). If you have financial need and did not receive a fee waiver from Law Services, you may apply directly to the law school for an application fee waiver (see link to form above).
