Pre-Application Checklist

If you’ve already registered for JD-CAS (required to complete your application), applying to Santa Clara Law takes just a few minutes. Here’s what you’ll need to successfully complete your application.

  1. For Fall 2019 admission, take the LSAT by January 2019.
  2. Register with JD-CAS if you haven’t done so. Most students do this when they register to take the LSAT, but you can do it before if you want. Learn more over at the official JD-CAS site.
  3. Submit a 1-3 page personal statement.
  4. When you register with JD-CAS, you’ll have the opportunity to upload your resume and submit letters of recommendation.This is optional but highly recommended.

Note that you can even apply now and take the LSAT later – simply add Santa Clara Law to the list of schools you send your scores to when you do take the test. (See our calendar on this page to view LSAT deadlines.)
