The College of Law typically receives between 900 and 1200 applications for 126 seats in the first-year class. There were 960 applications for the September 2022 class.

Applicants can take the LSAT up to three times in a single testing year. Please note that the testing year is different than the calendar year.

For applicants with multiple LSAT scores, the highest current score will be used. Test scores are current for five years so, for example, applicants applying for admission in September 2024, LSAT scores prior to June 2019 will not be accepted. All test takers must have a completed LSAT writing sample on file in order to see their score or have their score released to law schools.

Applicants for admission are strongly encouraged to submit and complete their applications as early as possible after November 1, as decisions are made on a rolling basis commencing in December. Please note that applications cannot be evaluated until all documentation, a Law School Admission Test (LSAT) score and all transcripts have been received. The majority of decisions are made after the February 1 deadline date.

For General applicants, a complete file consists of an online application form, an LSAT score report, a personal statement and transcripts from all universities attended. University of Saskatchewan transcripts do not need to be submitted. Reference letters for General applicants are not accepted. If there are special circumstances applicants wish to make known to the Admissions Committee, consider applying in the Discretionary category. Please provide your LSAC account number on your application so we may retrieve your score from LSAC. Proof of proficiency in English is required, if English is not your first language.


If you are presently enrolled in classes, arrange to have the institution you are currently attending submit your marks up to the end of the Fall Term (including results following December examinations) by February 1. After all courses have been completed, arrange to have your institution email a final transcript (containing April marks) by no later than June 1. Final transcripts from each post-secondary institution you have attended or are currently attending (other than the University of Saskatchewan), must be sent directly from the issuing institution to the College of Law at If your university does not provide transcripts by email, arrange to have them mail the transcripts to: College of Law, University of Saskatchewan, 15 Campus Drive, Saskatoon, SK S7N 5A6. 

The deadline for receipt of final transcripts is June 1. It is the responsibility of applicants to ensure that final transcripts reach the Admissions Committee by the deadline, and that their file is complete. You can do this by logging into your account and checking your supplemental items.

Indicate on your application if you have any connection to Saskatchewan. For example, if you are a current or former resident of Saskatchewan, including if you attended elementary and/or high school in Saskatchewan. Also, indicate if a member of your immediate family is currently attending the University of Saskatchewan, or has attended the University of Saskatchewan College of Law. Provide sufficient detail, such as dates and locations. If there is insufficient space on the application form, provide further details in your personal statement.

The LSAT is offered several times per year. Some dates may not be available depending on the test site. The January test score is the latest one the college will accept in considering applications for the coming September, although applicants are strongly encouraged to write the test earlier if possible. Applications are assessed on a rolling basis, and some offers of admission and decisions about scholarships will be made before January LSAT scores are available. Check the LSAC website for administration and deadline dates.

The average LSAT score for the class of September 2022 (Regular Category) was 158.

The average for the class of September 2022 (Regular Category) was 85%.

There are no defined "pre-law" programs or classes. We accept applicants from all accredited university undergraduate programs. We suggest applicants take something they are interested in as well as work towards another degree in the event they are unsuccessful in obtaining admittance.

All applicants to the JD program are required to have a minimum of two full years (60 credit units) of university-level academic work beyond high school. Many applicants complete a full undergraduate degree program before entering law school and some have completed graduate degrees. Please note that some college or vocational programs may not be eligible for consideration.

The Admissions Committee carefully reviews and considers the entire contents of applicants' files. For most applicants, a formula combining the LSAT score and the best 2 years average will have the most significant weight. In some cases, the personal statement will be important; this is particularly true for applicants in the Discretionary category.  The nature and difficulty of applicants’ prior university course of study is also taken into account.

We calculate both a best-two full years average and an overall average in undergraduate study. We require a minimum of 24 credit units in the fall and winter terms per year in order to calculate a best two-years average. Summer session and intersession classes are not counted in the calculation of the best two-years average, but are counted towards your overall average.
