Amending Your Law School Application

In order to amend your law school admission application, you will need to send Law School Registrar Nicole Toerpe Mason a business letter (including the date and your address) that

  1. indicates the information that you did not disclose, and
  2. your reason for not disclosing it ("I forgot" or "I didn't realize this is what it was asking for" is just fine).

Law School Registrar Toerpe Mason will respond via letter and your letter, as well as a copy of her response, will be attached to your application and retained in your permanent file at the Law School. The letter may be sent as an attachment to an email to Registrar Toerpe Mason but the explanation itself cannot be in email form. It must be a business-type letter that will be printed and placed in your Law School file. 

You will receive a response from Registrar Toerpe Mason in receipt of your amendment. If you submit the amendment after the date on which the BBE reviews files of graduating students, Registrar Toerpe Mason will send the BBE your amendment and her response, in addition to placing these documents in your file.

If you've been notified by the Supreme Court of Wisconsin Board of Bar Examiners (BBE) that you must amend your law school admission application, simply indicate in your letter to Registrar Toerpe Mason that this request is in response to an inquiry from the BBE. Registrar Toerpe Mason will then copy the BBE officials on her response to your request.
