Applicants must submit a valid unexpired TOEFL or IELTS official score report, unless the applicant has earned (or will earn), prior to law school matriculation, a baccalaureate-level or higher degree from an accredited institution of higher education where English is the primary language of instruction and where the corresponding degree of study was undertaken primarily in one of the following countries:
The Office of Admissions & Financial Aid may, at its sole discretion, require a TOEFL or IELTS score of any applicant, regardless of education or other attributes.
In addition to a bar examination, there are character, fitness, and other qualifications for admission to the bar in every U.S. jurisdiction. Applicants are encouraged to determine the requirements for any jurisdiction in which they intend to seek admission by contacting the jurisdiction. Addresses for all relevant agencies are available through the National Conference of Bar Examiners.
You will be asked to certify that all of your responses are complete and accurate as well as certify certain other statements prior to submitting your application. This includes a continuing duty to inform Wake Forest University School of Law and to update your responses without delay if the responses you provide later become incomplete or inaccurate.
Wake Forest Law is one of several schools that accept Graduate Record Examination (GRE) scores for admissions consideration. Applicants who would like to be considered based on their GRE scores should not register or sit for the Law School Admissions Test (LSAT). Scores and registration information is automatically sent to Wake Forest Law for applicants who have taken an LSAT in the past or who sit for an administration during the application process. Wake Forest Law must consider any LSAT score or registration that is reported. Subsequently reported GRE scores will be invalid for the admissions process.
