Applicants educated in a foreign country are required to submit all foreign transcripts through the Credential Assembly Service (CAS). An international credential evaluation will be completed by the American Association of College Registrars and Admissions Officers and incorporated into your CAS law school report.
You are required to submit a Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) score, unless you are from a country where English is the primary language or you hold a recent degree granted by a US university. If it is determined that you need to submit a TOEFL score, you must contact Educational Testing Service (ETS) and request that your TOEFL score be sent to LSAC. LSAC’s TOEFL code for JD CAS is 8395. The TOEFL score will be included in your CAS law school report.
