What Is the Credential Assembly Service (CAS)?

The Credential Assembly Service is a mandatory fee-based service provided by LSAC. For a one-time fee of $175 (as of 2016), LSAC collects an applicant’s required documentation (LSAT score, LSAT writing sample, letters of recommendation, and transcripts) and uses it to create a Law School Report for the applicant that is forwarded to law schools upon the schools’ request. A CAS account is active for 5 years.
