Admissions Policy, Application Requirements and Procedures

Delaware Law seeks applicants who have earned a bachelor's degree from an accredited college or university. We seek students with strong academic records established during their undergraduate years and, where applicable, through graduate study. We use a holistic admissions process that considers not only your undergraduate GPA and LSAT scores, but also your work and life experiences, extracurricular activities, and community involvement. We require a personal statement and suggest and welcome up to three letters of recommendation. We welcome diversity and encourage women and ethnic minority members to apply. All applicants who are not admitted are considered for the Trial Admissions Program (TAP), which recognizes potential for success in law school despite an uncompetitive UGPA or LSAT score.

Follow these steps to begin the application process.

Take the Law School Admission Test (LSAT).

The LSAT, required testing for applicants, is administered throughout the country in June, July, September, October, November, January, February, March and April. Specific information regarding the LSAT process and registration can be obtained by contacting:

Law School Admission Council (LSAC)

662 Penn Street
P.O. Box 2000
Newtown, PA 18940-0998
Phone: 215.968.1001

Register for the Law School Credential Assembly Service (CAS)

CAS is a service offered through the LSAC. CAS registration is required and simplifies the application process. Through CAS, all of your records—including undergraduate, graduate, professional, and prior law school (if applicable)  transcripts, as well as letters of recommendation—are assembled with your LSAT scores and delivered electronically to Delaware Law.

Letters of Recommendation

You must submit your letters of recommendation through CAS. Letters of recommendation are strongly suggested but not required for admission to Delaware Law. A maximum of three letters will be reviewed. The most helpful letters are usually written by individuals such as former professors, employers, or associates who have specific knowledge of your intellectual abilities and character.

Complete the Application 

The application is paperless and you must apply online.

Note: Delaware Law does not accept applications from students who have been academically disqualified from and are not in good standing at their previous law school.

Forward All Transcripts

Request official transcripts from every undergraduate, graduate, and professional school you have attended and send them to the LSAC’s CAS. You must have completed a bachelor’s degree from an accredited college or university before beginning your studies at Delaware Law.

Qualifications for Admission to the Bar/Character and Fitness

Review the questions carefully in your application’s Character and Fitness section, and answer them completely. You have a continuing obligation to update your responses to these questions if they change, even after you apply. In addition to a bar examination, there are character, fitness, and other qualifications for admission to the bar in every U.S. jurisdiction. Applicants are encouraged to determine the requirements for any jurisdiction in which they intend to seek admission by contacting the jurisdiction. Addresses for all relevant agencies are available through the National Conference of Bar Examiners
