In addition to the on line application (no paper applications), prospective students should submit directly to the IPLP Program office (IPLP Program, The University of Arizona James E. Rogers College of Law, P.O. Box 210176, Tucson, Arizona 85721-0176 U.S.A.):
- Two letters of recommendation;
- A resume;
- A 2-3 page personal statement indicating your interest in indigenous law and policy, critical race theory, and/or human rights, along with a description of any relevant experience in the field. The IPLP is particularly interested in students who, by virtue of their background and experience, will bring diverse interests and perspectives to the graduate program;
- Official transcripts for all post-secondary educational institutions previously attended;
- For international students whose first language is not English, an official Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) test report with a minimal score of 600 (or the computer based equivalent); the University of Arizona offers excellent short courses in English, which may be arranged at the student's cost prior to enrolling if a student's TOEFL is under the required level.
