Register with the Law School Admission Council LSAC

The Law School Admission Council (LSAC) is a non-profit organization with over 200 member law schools in the United States and Canada. It administers the Law School Admission Test (LSAT) and facilitates the Credential Assembly System (CAS), both of which can be accessed via the LSAC website. LSAC does not make admission assessments or decisions.  You will receive an account once you register for the LSAT.

Register with the Credential Assembly Service

You must also register with the Credential Assembly Service (CAS), previously known as the Law School Data Assembly Service (LSDAS). This is your common app for applying to law school.  CAS forwards copies of your undergraduate transcripts, a standardized numerical summary of your academic records, your LSAT score(s), and letters of recommendation to each law school to which you are applying. CAS converts the grades on your transcript to a standard 4.0 system and course credits to semester hours. Be sure to check your transcripts for accuracy before having them sent to CAS.

Once you are registered with CAS, please check “yes” on the application to authorize LSAC to release your information to your pre-law advisor. This will help provide accurate statistics for Tufts students who apply to law school in the future. If you checked “no” initially, you can edit your account to authorize the release of information.
