International J.D. Applicants

Applicants who have earned an undergraduate degree from a school outside the United States or Canada must take the LSAT and must have their academic transcripts analyzed by a credential evaluation service. You may choose to register for the LSAC JD Credential Assembly Service. This service is included in the CAS subscription fee.

If a private foreign transcript evaluation service is used, please note that we require a bachelor's degree equivalency statement along with an evaluation of the grade point average.

Evaluation of transcripts is NOT required if the foreign education was completed through a study abroad, consortium, or exchange program sponsored by a U.S. or Canadian institution, and the work is clearly indicated as such on the home campus transcript.

An applicant who is not a U.S. citizen or who does not reside permanently in the United States and for whom English is not the native language must submit the results of the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) in addition to the other admissions requirements.

The minimum TOEFL score for JD applicants is:

  • 100 on the Internet-based exam.
  • 600 on the paper-based exam.
