Admission Requirements

Lewis & Clark Law School seeks a diverse academic community of students who have demonstrated significant professional promise and the capacity for excellence in law school.

We selectively admit candidates who have the desired intellectual talent, motivation, and high ethical character, from a rich variety of academic and professional disciplines.

Special note for Fall 2020 Applicants:

In light of the disruptions to the LSAT and other candidate services, we are still accepting applications for Fall 2020 on a rolling basis. June LSAT takers are encouraged to submit their application in advance of receiving their LSAT score. Doing so will ensure the most expedited processing. We will make every effort to deliver decisions as quickly as possible. Note, we are unable to accept July LSAT scores for Fall 2020 admission.

We welcome applications from candidates taking advantage of the LSAC’s Review and Restore option and will accept LSAT-Flex scores. Click here to learn more about either of these options and be sure to read the FAQs.
