What is the LLM Credential Assembly Service (LLM CAS)?
LLM CAS simplifies the application process for eligible graduates of universities or law schools who want to obtain an LLM or other graduate law degree from a participating US law school. Our service allows you to request just one copy of all your official academic documents and letters of recommendation for submission to LSAC. When your selected schools request these credentials, we will forward those documents to them.
How does LLM CAS work?
There are two parts to the Credential Assembly Service, including the Document Assembly Service (DAS) and the International Transcript Authentication and Evaluation Service (ITAES).
However, there is no fee for the services listed below.
- You have your transcripts sent once to us for processing.
- You have your letters of recommendation sent once to us for processing.
- You have your English proficiency exam scores sent once to us.
- You create an account to search for and save a list of law schools and programs of interest to you.
- You create a Candidate Referral Service (CRS) profile that law schools can use to recruit you.
Document Assembly Service (DAS)
- You can complete and transmit your admission applications online. (Note: Individual law school application and report fees are not included in the DAS fee.)
- We forward your LSAC-processed documents to law schools.
International Transcript Authentication and Evaluation Service (ITAES)
- This service is for applicants educated outside of the United States who require authentication and evaluation of their official academic records.
- It must be purchased in conjunction with the Document Assembly Service.
What does LLM CAS cost?
- Document Assembly Service (DAS): one-time fee of $85
- International Transcript Authentication and Evaluation Service (ITAES): one-time fee of $135
- Law School Report Fees: $30 for each law school report we send
- Law School Application Fees: varies by law school. Fee is noted on the application.
LLM CAS does not offer any fee waivers for DAS or ITAES. However, some law schools offer application fee waivers for applicants using the LLM CAS.
