General Admission Procedures

To be considered for admission, applicants must follow this procedure:

  1. Application and Fee. The applicant must submit a law school application, along with the $50 application fee. This fee is not refundable and is not credited toward other fees in the event of admission.
  2. Law School Admission Test (LSAT). Each applicant must take the Law School Admission Test (LSAT), which is administered by the Law School Admission Council (LSAC). An LSDAS Law School Report will be requested by the School of Law.The results of a test taken more than five years prior to the date for which the applicant seeks admission will not be considered in the absence of unusual circumstances. Applicants may contact LSAC at (215) 968-1001 or www.lsac.org. The Elon University School of Law LSAC code number is 5500.
  3. Law School Data Assembly Service (LSDAS). Each applicant must register with the Law School Data Assembly Service (LSDAS), so that Elon Law will receive a current Law School Report. It is the applicant’s responsibility to meet all of LSAC’s requirements and to ensure that Elon Law receives a completed LSDAS report.
  4. Résumé. Applicants who have a résumé should include it with their application. However, even if a résumé is submitted, the applicant must respond to all questions on the application.
  5. Letters of Recommendation. The applicant must provide at least two (2) letters of recommendation. It is recommended that these letters be forwarded to LSDAS, which will then forward them to the School of Law. However, a letter may be sent directly to the School of Law when it addresses an applicant’s fitness for Elon’s particular program.

The School of Law will attempt to notify an applicant if a required item is missing from the application file. However, the applicant remains ultimately responsible for ensuring that the application file is completed in a timely fashion.

Applicants should retain copies of their law school applications, since many state boards of law examiners request copies of applications.

All materials submitted in support of an application become the property of the law school.

Non-Discrimination and Diversity Statement
Elon Law School subscribes to Standard 210 of the American Bar Association Standards and Rules of Procedure for the Approval of Law Schools and maintains equality of opportunity in legal education without discrimination or segregation on the ground of race, color, religion, sex, age, national or ethnic origin, veteran status or disability. In the spirit of the Elon University Mission Statement, Elon University and its School of Law regard discrimination against gay and lesbian members of the university community as inconsistent with its goal of providing an atmosphere of mutual respect in which students, faculty and staff may learn, work and live. The School of Law also subscribes to Standard 211 and is committed to providing full opportunities for the study of law and entry into the profession by qualified members of groups, particularly racial and ethnic minorities, that have been victims of discrimination. The law school’s commitment under these Standards extends to all law school programs and activities, including admissions policies and employment of faculty and staff.
