Letters of Recommendation

Berkeley Law requires two letters of recommendation. At least one letter must come from your law professor. If you have been out of school for five or more years, one professional reference from a current or former employer is appropriate. Applicants may submit one additional academic or professional letter if they wish to do so.

To send Letters of Recommendation to LSAC – 1) Log in to your LLM CAS account and click on Letters of Recommendation. 2) Add your recommenders’ names and contact information. 3) Assign the appropriate letters to each school using the letter ID number. 4) An email will be sent to each or your recommenders requesting them to complete and upload a letter for you, or you may print the required recommender forms to provide to your recommenders if they prefer to submit a letter by paper.

The recommender should send the recommender form and letter to LSAC.  Letters without a form will be returned to the sender.  Letters processed by LSAC become their property and cannot be returned or copied.
