The Law School Admission Council (LSAC) is a nonprofit corporation that provides products and services that standardize and simplify the admission process for law schools and their applicants.
The Law School Admissions Test (LSAT) is a half-day, standardized test administered four times each year at designated testing centers. The test is an integral part of the law school admission process, helping law schools make sound admission decisions by providing a standard measure of acquired reading and verbal reasoning skills that are essential for success in law school.
LSAT scores earned within the past five-year period are considered. Applicants should register for the LSAT no later than 30 days before the test date.
The Credential Assembly Service (CAS) is a service that allows law school applicants to upload admission documents and transcripts to the LSAC. Every applicant to Southwestern must register with CAS which provides the law school with the applicant's LSAT score(s) and a summary of all undergraduate academic work.
LSAT/CAS registration materials may be obtained from the Law School Admission Council (see sidebar for contact information).
For purposes of registration for various admissions services, Southwestern's code number is 4703.
Note: Academic records from foreign institutions must be submitted to CAS.
