During the application phase, applicants will submit their postsecondary school transcripts to LSDAS, and the School of Law will receive copies of these transcripts from LSDAS. While this is sufficient for the application phase, accepted applicants must submit an official transcript indicating the award of a bachelor’s degree prior to enrolling in Elon Law. Generally, applicants must have received a bachelor’s degree from an accredited institution prior to enrollment in the School of Law. In rare instances, the school may, consistent with ABA Standards, admit exceptionally well-qualified applicants who have successfully completed three-fourths of the work acceptable for a bachelor’s degree.
