Credential Assembly Service (CAS) Reports (LLM & Other Law Programs)

After you submit your application to LLM Credential Assembly Service (CAS)-requiring law schools, the schools contact us directly to request your CAS Report. When your CAS file is complete, your report will be sent. The initial CAS Report will be generated based on the program’s specifications for transcripts and letters of recommendation.

CAS Reports are $30 for each program to which you apply.

You may purchase a report when you submit your electronic application to a program through LSAC. We are unable to send CAS Reports at your request; the law schools to which you apply will request your report.

If you are not submitting a law school application through LSAC, you may pay for a CAS Report by adding a report to your Shopping Cart from the Apply/Applications page of your LLM Credential Assembly Service account.

Reports include

  • transcript copies, if applicable;
  • transcript evaluation, if applicable;
  • letters of recommendation, if applicable; and
  • TOEFL/IELTS scores, if applicable.

Updated CAS Reports

If you have a current LSAC LLM Credential Assembly Service file, LSAC will routinely send report updates to law schools to which you have applied at no additional charge when

  • LSAC receives an updated academic record within the same admission year;
  • an error in your academic documents or evaluation is reported and corrected within the same admission year. A revised official academic record clearly marked as “corrected copy” is necessary to correct errors;
  • LSAC receives an additional letter of recommendation within the same admission year up to the limit set by the law school. (Each law school can specify at what point in its admission process it will receive letters. Therefore, if you apply to multiple schools, some may receive your letters sooner than others.); or
  • new TOEFL or IELTS scores are added to your account.

Upon submission of an official request from the law school, the original academic records received by LSAC will be forwarded to the law school where the applicant intends to or has matriculated. If there is a change in the matriculation status, it is the responsibility of the applicant to ensure the original records are received by the appropriate law school.
