III. College of Law Admission
Admission to the professional curriculum of law is granted by the College of Law Admissions Committee. The College of Law reserves the right to restrict the number of entering students to a class size consistent with its facilities and its educational objectives. Additional information and requirements are provided on the College of Law website (www.uwyo.edu/law).
- Complete the electronic University of Wyoming College of Law Application for Admission through LSAC between October 1 and March 1. Applications received by December 1 will be considered for early admission.
- Submit the application fee online through the College of Law website or by sending a check or money order to the College of Law.
- Applicants must have a bachelor's degree from an accredited college or university (subject to some limited exceptions).
- Take the Law School Admission Test (LSAT) administered by the Law School Admission Council (LSAC) no later than the February administration. The LSAT is given four times each year at numerous locations within and outside of the United States. Information about the test, dates, test locations and application form may be obtained from LSAC, Box 2000, Newtown, PA 18940-0998, (215) 968-1001, or on the Web at http://www.lsac.org/.
- Register with LSAC's Credential Assembly Service (CAS) between September and January. Registration with CAS can be completed through the LSAC website (www.lsac.org). An official transcript from each college attended must be sent directly to CAS. It is advisable to register with CAS at the same time one registers for the LSAT. CAS prepares a report and forwards a copy to each law school to which application has been made. Applicants do not send transcripts directly to the College of Law until they are admitted. For more information about CAS, go to www.lsac.org.
- International students must supply current TOEFL scores. Minimum scores required for admission are 525 on the written exam or 70 on the internet-based exam. International students must take the LSAT exam and register with the Law School Admissions Council (www.lsac.org). If a transcript analysis will not be provided by the LSAC for any foreign educational institutions attended, official transcripts must be provided with an English translation.
