"I chose LSU Law Center because I was looking for an affordable school with a good academic reputation and an international perspective. I was also surprised to find students from such broad academic backgrounds."(more)
LSU's campus is situated on more than 2,000 acres, and contains nearly 1,200 live-oak trees.
A student in good standing, enrolled in an accredited law school, who wishes to apply as a transfer student must submit the following information:
The LSU Law Center accepts transfer applications from students that have satisfactorily completed the full first year curriculum at a law school accredited by the American Bar Association. The Law Center reserves the right to refuse credit, in whole or in part, and to withdraw credit for previously completed courses. Transfer students must provide a statement from the dean of the current law school certifying that the applicant is in good standing and eligible for continued enrollment at that school. Petitions for admission with advanced standing are considered by the Admissions Committee. Prospective transfer students who are denied admission are encouraged to apply as nonmatriculating students, as admission as a nonmatriculating student is partly based on approval by the student's dean. Students are not admitted with advanced standing for the summer term.
Transfer applicants should submit a completed application and the $50 application fee by June 1. A petition stating the reasons underlying the transfer request and letters of recommendation must be included with any additional supporting documents. Students may also include a resumé in addition to the requested information. Transfer applicants should request that official transcripts of all work (undergraduate, graduate, and law) be sent directly to the Credential Assembly Service (CAS) of LSAC. A letter of good standing must be submitted from each law school attended. Applicants should also send a current LSAT score (LSAT scores more than five years old will not be considered). A copy of the LSAT report is also required.
