Undergraduate Degree Requirements
To be eligible for admission, applicants must hold a baccalaureate degree from an accredited college or university. There are no prerequisite courses for admission to law school. In addition, no preference is given to one undergraduate major over another. More than 35 majors are typically represented among the 135 students who enter Creighton Law School each year.
While completing your undergraduate degree, we do encourage you to take courses that will strengthen your skills in writing, reading comprehension, analytical and logical reasoning, and public speaking.
Law School Admissions Test (LSAT)
You are required to take an entrance exam, the Law School Admission Test (LSAT). The LSAT is administered in June, September/October, December, and February at centers throughout the country, as well as at several international locations. You should take the LSAT as early as possible, but no later than the February prior to the August in which you plan to enter law school. To be eligible for scholarship consideration, applicants must take the LSAT no later than the February exam, and they must complete their application file prior by March 1.
The Law School Admissions Council organizes and administers the LSAT. Information on LSAT dates and testing locations, as well as registration materials are available at:

Newtown, PA 18940-0998
The Law School Admissions Council website provides information regarding LSAT preparation.
Credential Assembly Service (LSDAS)
All applicants are required to register for and create an account with the LSAC's Credential Assembly Service (LSDAS). The Credential Assembly Service provides the law school with your LSAT Score(s), a summary of your undergraduate coursework, copies of all transcripts, and copies of your letters of recommendation. You must have official copies of all college transcripts sent to the LSAC for inclusion in your Credential Assembly Service Report. In addition, you may also have your letters of recommendation sent to the LSAC for inclusion in your report. You do have the option of having your letters of recommendation sent directly to the Creighton University School of Law Admissions Office.
The Creighton University School of Law begins accepting applications on September 1 for the next year's Entering Class. The Admissions Committee will begin to review completed applications in November.
We welcome a new entering class each year in May (for the Accelerated Juris Doctor Program) and in August (for the traditional 3-year and the part-time Juris Doctor programs).
To receive priority consideration for scholarships, applicants should submit their applications by March 1. Applicants who are interested in the Accelerated Juris Doctor (AJD) program must submit all application materials by April 1.
