EDUCATION REQUIREMENTS
Liberty University School of Law requires for admission to its J.D. program a bachelor’s degree from an institution that is accredited by an accrediting agency recognized by the Department of Education.

APPLICATION

Applying online is easy for those who are registered with LSAC.  Complete each section of the Application for Admission, which includes the Personal Profile Statement. All questions must be answered completely. Please keep us informed of any address changes during the application process.

Contact the School of Law for further information at 434-592-5300 or by email at lawadmissions@liberty.edu.



LSAT AND CAS
Applicants must take the Law School Admission Test (LSAT) and must register with the Credential Assembly Service (CAS). Official transcripts of all work completed in each college or university should be sent to the Law School Admission Council. See the LSAC website for directions. Supplementary transcripts covering work completed after the initial registration with CAS should be submitted to LSAC. These transcripts should not be sent to the School of Law. Consult the LSAC website for further information.

 

LETTERS OF RECOMMENDATION
Submit two letters of recommendation. One letter should address your academic abilities, and the other should be a personal recommendation. We recommend that you submit your letters through the Credential Assembly Service (CAS) Letter of Recommendation Service. Letters submitted through CAS will be copied and sent to us along with your LSAC report. LSAC has added an Evaluation Service, which is optional. You may learn more about the Evaluation Service on the LSAC website.


APPLICATION FEE AND DEADLINES 
A $50 non-refundable application fee is paid online at LSAC’s website when the application is completed. The application file includes a personal statement, two letters of recommendation, the application fee, and the full CAS report. Letters of recommendation may be directed to LSAC or to the School of Law. Applicants who do not have all of the required documents in their files by June 1 may be withdrawn from the admissions process; therefore, it is imperative that the applicants monitor the status of their applications.

Applications are accepted online at LSAC from September 1 through June 1 of the year of expected enrollment.


RESUMÉ
Applicants are encouraged to submit a current resumé with the Application for Admission form. The resumé should include work experience, honors, awards, extra-curricular activity, and community service.
