Applicants with Foreign Degrees
Applicants who have been awarded a baccalaureate degree by an institution outside the United States must use the Law School Admissions Council (LSAC) JD Credential Assembly Service (www.lsac.org). Your foreign transcript will be evaluated by this service. The evaluation is provided with your LSDAS subscription fee. A Foreign Credential Evaluation will be completed by the American Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers (AACRAO), and will be included in your LSDAS report.
You may contact LSAC for any questions you have regarding the JD Credential Assembly Service at 215-968-1001, or LSACINFO@LSAC.org.
