Apply to Visit Oregon Law for a Semester
Visiting Law Student Applications for 2012-2013 will be accepted beginning June 1, 2012.
Oregon Law welcomes applications for fall and spring semester visiting law students. The Oregon Law application for visiting law students will be available at LSAC.org in late spring 2012. Once the visiting application is available at LSAC.org, we will also provide a link to the visiting law student application here. Applications for fall 2012 will be accepted beginning June 1, 2012 and reviewed on a rolling basis. Your file must contain all of the following information in order to begin the review process. Please review the directions for first-year applicants and follow the additional directions outlined below.
- Applicants interested in visiting Oregon law for a semester should first review the transfer credit policy. Then, thoroughly complete the visitor application for admission at LSAC.org.
- Register with the LSAC Credential Assembly Service (CAS) at www.lsac.org or by calling (215) 968-1001. LSAC will create a CAS report that contains your LSAT score(s), a copy of your LSAT writing sample, copies of your academic transcripts, an analysis of your academic transcripts, and copies of letters of recommendation and online evaluations. The CAS report will be reviewed with your application.
- You must provide a signed “letter of good standing” from a dean or the registrar at your current law school. This letter must explain whether you are in good academic standing, whether you have been the subject of a disciplinary and/or honor code inquiry or proceeding, and whether you are eligible to return to your law school.
- You must provide an official law school transcript. In addition, you must submit one letter of recommendation from a professor at your current law school. Both the law school transcript and law professor’s letter of recommendation should be mailed directly to the Oregon Law admissions office.
- You must provide your most recent class rank. This may appear in either your law school transcript or in the letter of good standing.
- Please note that the absence of the application fee or any other required document would prevent us from reviewing your application. If you have specific questions about transferring credits, the academic calendar, financial aid, or making the transition to Eugene, please email admissions at firstname.lastname@example.org.
