Letters of Recommendation

One letter of recommendation is required to complete your application. The School of Law welcomes and reads additional letters. Letters must be submitted directly to the LSAC and will be forwarded to the School of Law via the CAS. If you have been enrolled in an academic program within the last three years, the School of Law prefers at least one academic recommendation.

Positive and meaningful recommendations concerning your analytical skills and communication and writing abilities often prove helpful in the Committee's decision-making. Therefore, the School of Law advises the submission of letters of recommendation from college professors who can attest to your ability to enter a competitive professional program. If you have been out of school for some time, letters from a work situation can be helpful.

The School of Law requires that letters be submitted through the LSAC Letter of Recommendation Service that serves all member schools. This service is included in the CAS Registration Subscription. Letters will be copied and sent to the Office of Admissions along with your CAS Report.
