COVID-19 FAQ’s About Admissions

The LSU Law Center’s Office of Admissions has received many questions about our office’s plan to navigate the COVID-19 public health emergency. Below you will find answers to some of the most frequently asked questions we’ve received. If you have additional questions that are not addressed here, please don’t hesitate to contact us directly at

Will the COVID-19 pandemic affect the timeline for admission decision notifications?

Law Center Admissions Office staff are working remotely in an effort to avoid delays during the application process. We typically try to provide decisions within 30 days of a file becoming complete. At times during the application cycle, applicants may experience waits of 4 to 6 weeks to receive a decision.

Will the COVID-19 pandemic affect the LSU Law application deadline?

The fall 2020 entering class application deadline is July 1. At this time, there are no plans to extend the current deadline. Our holistic process requires us to have ample time to thoroughly review applications to LSU Law. We recommend submitting an application as early as possible during the application cycle. Applicants have the ability to submit their application at any time, including instances where all required documents may not be available.

What is the latest LSAT that LSU Law will accept for the fall 2020 entering class?

The June 2020 LSAT administration is the latest LSAT score that can be used for the fall 2020 application cycle.

Will there be any virtual events or tours at the LSU Law Center?

The Governor of Louisiana issued a statewide stay at home order effective March 23, at 5 pm. As a result, the LSU Law Center is unfortunately closed and we are unable to offer tours of the facility at this time. We are currently working to provide a virtual tour of the building and will update our website as that becomes available.

When will I receive my admission packet?

Admitted students will receive their admission packet electronically. If a student is admitted, they should receive their materials within 2-3 business days of noticing a change in the online status checker.
