To qualify for admission to the LL.M. program, applicants must have earned their first law degree - LL.B., J.D., or equivalent. Admission is highly selective, and those admitted must have excellent law school records, strong letters of recommendation, proficiency in English, and leadership potential. Although not required, some work or research experience following completion of the first law degree is preferred.
This program does not require the LSAT exam; however, students must be proficient in the English language. International students whose primary language is not English, must submit satisfatory scores on the Test of English as a Foreign Language exam (TOEFL). The preferred TOEFL score is 90 IBT.
The LL.M. Admissions Committee will carefully examine all parts of the application.
