This is your opportunity to describe why you are pursuing legal study at Georgia State Law and highlight any experiences, qualifications or other information you believe to be relevant. The statement should be no more than two double-spaced pages.
Activate your LSAC Law School Report. The Credential Assembly Service (CAS) will forward your report after all required documentation has been received. This service needs at least three to four weeks before our deadlines to receive, process and forward your materials.
Send transcripts to LSAC for inclusion in your Law School Report.

  • your class ranking;
  • confirmation that you are in good standing and eligible to return to the school
  • statement of permission and a listing of conditions regarding your attendance at Georgia State Law; and
