Admission to our LL.M. program is highly selective. We are interested in applicants who have completed their prior legal studies with high rank and who intend to return to their home countries to contribute to the legal profession. We are equally interested in applicants pursuing careers in private practice, government service, the judiciary, international organizations, non-governmental organizations, and legal scholarship.
At a minimum, applicants must have either
- graduated from a U.S. law school that is approved by the American Bar Association,
- obtained a full degree in law from a non-U.S. university, or
- be admitted to practice law in a country other than the U.S.
In addition, applicants whose native language is not English must have achieved a minimum score of at least 100 using the Internet-based test (IBT) on the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL). Alternatively, we require an Overall Band Score of at least 7.5 on the International English Language Testing System (IELTS).
