UCLA School of Law will request the applicant's law school report, including any LSAT score(s), from LSAC.
All internationally-educated applicants must take the LSAT or the GRE but are not required to take the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL).
Students may choose which test to take; however please note the following guidelines: Beginning June 3, 2019, the LSAT writing sample will not be conducted at the same time as the LSAT exam—it will be an on-demand writing exam administered online.
(For full details please visit: https://org/lsat/taking-lsat/lsat-writing-faqs.) Applicants should be aware that their application cannot be transmitted to UCLA Law for evaluation without an LSAC writing sample.
If you completed any post-secondary work outside the U. (including its territories) or Canada, you must use this service for the evaluation of your transcripts.
The one exception to this requirement is if you completed the work through a study abroad, consortium, or exchange program sponsored by a U. or Canadian institution, and the work is clearly indicated as such on the home campus transcripts.
UCLA School of Law requires that applicants submit two letters of recommendation.
At least one letter should be from someone familiar with the applicant's academic work, if at all possible.
LSAT/Credential Assembly Service registration forms and other information may be obtained from the Law School Admission Council website or (215) 968-1001.All applicants, including those reapplying, those taking the GRE, and applicants from institutions that do not issue grades, are required to register with the Credential Assembly Service.A transcript from each college or university attended and listed on the registration form should be sent directly to LSAC's Credential Assembly Service in accordance with their instructions.Applicants should not wait for fall grades before sending transcripts to LSAC.However, applicants must submit work completed after the initial registration to LSAC, as updated reports will be forwarded to the Law School Admissions Office.The Credential Assembly Service (CAS) was developed to help participating schools collect and analyze data pertaining to the academic records of applicants.The law school report includes a year-by-year summary of units and grade-point averages (GPA), a cumulative GPA, LSAT score(s) (if applicable), and a copy of each transcript.The UCLA School of Law requires that your transcripts be submitted through LSAC's Credential Assembly Service.This service is included in the Credential Assembly Service subscription fee.More time is usually required to receive international transcripts.Questions about the Credential Assembly Service can be directed to LSAC at 215.968.1001 or [email protected]
