Top 10 FAQs About the Misconduct & Irregularities Process

The submission, even by mistake, as part of the law school admission process, of any information that is false, inconsistent, or misleading, or the omission of information that may result in a false or misleading conclusion, or the violation of any regulation governing the law school admission process, including any violation of LSAT test center regulations.

There is no difference. These charges are used simultaneously because intent is not an element in the procedure and is not considered in the findings.

Anything under the scope of the admission process, including the LSAT; the Credential Assembly Service; and first-year, transfer, and visiting admissions.

Misrepresentation of academic record; misrepresentation of information on law school applications; altered, nonauthentic, or unauthorized letters of recommendation; misrepresentation of disciplinary record; violation of LSAT testing regulations; failure to report prior law school matriculation.

You will be issued a charge letter by LSAC detailing the allegation(s), inviting you to respond to the allegation(s), and giving you the option to request a telephonic hearing.

If no determination of misconduct or irregularity is found, only you and the initiating party of the charge are notified. If a determination of misconduct or irregularity is found, you, the initiating party of the charge, and all law schools to which you have applied, will subsequently apply, or have matriculated, and other affected persons or institutions as appropriate, are notified.

No recommendation is made to any law school or bar association regarding how the charge of misconduct or irregularity should affect the outcome of a law school or bar admission decision. Each individual law school or bar association chooses how they want to interpret the findings and how it may or may not affect their admission decision.

Yes. By keeping those law schools you have applied to abreast of any changes to the information you submitted during the application process as they occur, you could avoid an allegation of misconduct or an irregularity.

Intent is not an element in the procedure and is not considered in the findings. You are expected to provide true and accurate information in your application materials and adhere to all regulations.

Review carefully and adhere to all instructions given for LSAT administrations and application materials.
