Credential Assembly Service (CAS)

Most law schools require that you register for the Credential Assembly Service. The CAS prepares and provides a report for each law school to which you apply. 

You need not register for the CAS at the same time you register for the LSAT.  It is recommended you register for CAS approximately six weeks before you plan to apply to law school. Your CAS period will extend for five years from your registration date.  If you register for a LSAT at anytime during your CAS period, the CAS period will be extended five years from your latest LSAT registration.

CAS Fee Waivers are available at

Law School Admission Council (LSAC)

The Law School Admission Council (LSAC) is a nonprofit corporation whose members are more than 200 law schools in the United States and Canada. It was founded in 1947 to coordinate, facilitate, and enhance the law school admission process. The organization also provides programs and services related to legal education. All LSAC-member U.S. law schools have been approved by the American Bar Association (ABA).

LSAC's Credential Assembly Service simplifies the admission process for law school applicants by allowing you to submit all of the necessary documentation one time, regardless of the number of schools to which you apply. American Bar Association-approved law schools and many other law schools require the use of CAS for JD applicants.
