Application Requirements for
Law School

Contact Us: (434) 592-5300

Education Requirements

To be admitted to Liberty's J.D. program, you'll need a bachelor’s degree from an institution that is accredited by an accrediting agency recognized by the Department of Education. Inquiries about exceptions should be addressed to the Office of Admissions.


Register and apply online through Law School Admission Council (LSAC). Complete each section of the Application for Admission, which includes your Personal Profile Statement. All questions must be answered completely. Please keep us informed of any address changes during your application process.


To apply, you must take the Law School Admission Test (LSAT) and register with the Credential Assembly Service (CAS). Official transcripts of all work completed in each college or university you've attended should be sent to LSAC. (See the LSAC website for instructions.) Supplementary transcripts covering work completed after your 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 Recommendations

Submit two letters of recommendation and/or evaluations. 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. 

Application Fee and Deadlines

A $50 nonrefundable application fee is generally paid online at LSAC when your application is complete. However, your application fee for 2016-2017 academic year admission is waived! Your application file should include a personal statement, two letters of recommendation, and your full CAS report. Letters of recommendation may be directed to LSAC or to the School of Law. If you do not have all of your required documents in your files by July 1, you may be withdrawn from the admissions process. Because of this, be sure to monitor your application status frequently. 

Applications and requirements for law school are accepted online at LSAC from September 1 through July 1 of the year you expect to enroll.

International Students Deadline

The School of Law must receive all application materials by April 1 of the expected enrollment year for international applicants applying for a student visa.


Applicants are encouraged to submit a current résumé with the Application for Admission form. Your résumé should include your work experience, honors, awards, extracurricular activity, and community service.
