With the exception of applicants to the Early Assurance Program, all applicants for admission to the J.D. Program at the Law Center are required to take the Law School Admission Test (LSAT). All candidates for Fall 2017 admission must have taken the LSAT in or after June 2011. Although we will accept the February 2017 LSAT, taking an earlier exam is strongly encouraged.

2016-2017 LSAT test dates:

  • Saturday, September 24, 2016
  • Saturday, December 3, 2016
  • Saturday, February 4, 2017

Georgetown Law requires only one LSAT score to apply to the J.D. program. Additional LSAT scores will be accepted. If you would like the Committee to consider additional LSAT scores before rendering a decision, you should complete the "hold request" section of the application. If you have already submitted your application, you are welcome to email us at to request that the Committee hold your application until additional LSAT score(s) are received.  For more information about the LSAT, click here
