At Creighton University School of Law, you’ll receive a purposeful, practical legal education—rooted in academic excellence and a commitment to the greater good. The first step to pursuing your law degree at Creighton is to apply online through the Law School Admission Council (LSAC).
Creighton offers three ways to earn your Juris Doctor, or JD, the degree you’ll need to practice law in the United States:
Take the Law School Admission Test (LSAT): The LSAT is administered in June, September/October, December and February at centers throughout the country and abroad. Take the LSAT as early as possible and no later than the February prior to the August in which you want to enter law school. The test is administered through LSAC (Law School Admission Council.) Apply online to Creighton School of Law through LSAC.
Register for LSAC’s Credential Assembly Service, obtain an LSAC account number, and request letters of recommendation and all undergraduate and graduate transcripts be sent to LSAC.
Submit 2 letters of recommendation: We prefer that 1 of your letters be from a college professor. We recommend you submit your letters through LSAC (see above).
Submit a personal statement and resume: Your personal statement should speak to factors in your background that indicate your potential success as a Creighton law student, such as your motivation to study law, your work experience, special interests, honors, community involvement or your success in overcoming personal hardships. You may also include why your GPA and LSAT scores may not indicate your ability to succeed in law school.
