Advocacy & Licensure
Advocacy tools

Updated June 2013

For information about the licensing process, ASLA recommends that you first contact the state licensing board where you intend to seek licensure. Many of the state websites have excellent information about the state process. For more information on applying for the Landscape Architect Registration Examination (LARE), contact the Council of Landscape Architectural Registration Boards and visit ASLA's LARE Prep webpage.
