If you are still in undergraduate school or you have recently graduated, ask professors to provide a letter of recommendation, especially if you have done well academically. If you have been out of school for at least three years, ask an employer or someone who knows you well. The recommender should be able to assess issues that will be critical to your success in law school, such as intellect, motivation, and communication skills. Choose recommenders who are impressed by you and your achievements over those who you think we will find impressive due to their title. Applicants must submit letters of recommendation to us through the CAS.
