College of Law Admission Requirements

The College of Law is committed to attracting qualified applicants from a wide variety of educational and career backgrounds. Applicants must have a bachelor’s degree or an international equivalent from either a regionally accredited US institution or ministry of education recognized foreign institution. The Admissions Committee, comprised of faculty members, seeks out applicants with solid undergraduate academic performance and a competitive LSAT score. The committee also considers qualitative information, such as writing ability, letters of recommendation, employment history, community service, maturity, and leadership.

A complete application to the College of Law includes:

  • A completed and signed application form
  • A complete Credential Assembly Service Report
  • A personal statement
  • Two letters of recommendation
  • A résumé

All applicants are required to register with LSAC’s Credential Assembly Service (CAS). Additionally, students who are admitted and who accept the College of Law’s offer of admission will be required to submit official transcripts directly to the College of Law prior to registration for classes. For more information, visit or call (215) 968-1001.

In addition to a bar examination, there are character, fitness, and other qualifications for admission to the bar in every U.S. jurisdiction. Applicants are encouraged to determine the requirements for any jurisdiction in which they intend to seek admission by contacting the jurisdiction. Addresses for all relevant agencies are available through the National Conference of Bar Examiners.
