International Applicants

A world-class legal education.

Creighton University School of Law’s reputation for excellence attracts international applicants from across the world. Our international students come from places like Singapore, South Korea, Vietnam, Zambia and China. Why Creighton Law? Because of our prestige, our small class sizes, our accessible professors, and our accommodating and welcoming community. Creighton is located in Omaha, Nebraska, in the middle of the United States.

Support for International Students

By its nature, Creighton School of Law is supportive. While some law schools might be fiercely competitive, Creighton offers a collaborative environment in which student success is first and foremost. You will get to know other students through student organizations, including the International Law Society (ILS). The Office of International Programs at Creighton University is available to you, offering assistance, information, advice and services.

Applying to Creighton School of Law

International applicants who apply to Creighton School of Law follow the same process as applicants in the United States. However, if you have completed more than one year of coursework at an institution outside of the U.S., you will be required to submit your transcripts through the Law School Admission Council’s (LSAC) JD Credential Assembly Service (JD CAS). The exception is if you completed the coursework through a study-abroad, consortium or exchange program that was sponsored by a U.S. or Canadian institution. This must be clearly indicated on the transcript of the home campus.


Taking the TOEFL® test, which is the most widely respected English-language test in the world, is recommended, but not required, for admission to Creighton University School of Law. TOEFL scores do, however, help our Admissions Committee in the admissions process.
