Supplemental KU Law application for international students (for preparing your I-20)
The Law School Admissions Test (LSAT) is not required for admission to the LL.M. Program. Upon admissions, you will be required to submit financial documents verifying that you have savings to cover the cost of attendance (tuition, fees, living expenses and mandatory health insurance) for the academic year in which you will be enrolling. You will be required to submit these documents before an I-20 form will be mailed to you.
English Language Proficiency
Except for U.S. citizens or permanent residents, proficiency in English is a requirement for all LL.M. candidates. Foreign students who speak English as a first language, or who obtained a law degree at an institution with instruction in all courses in English, may have the TOEFL requirement waived. For all other students, students must submit a TOEFL score report. Students with an iBT TOEFL score above 100 are presumptively proficient. Students with scores below 100 will be evaluated on a case by case basis and may be required to attend English language classes prior to and/or during their enrollment. LSAC's TOEFL code for the CAS is 0058.
KU Law also accepts IELTS and deems students with an overall score of 7.0 or better as presumptively proficient. Students with an overall score below 7.0 will be evaluated on a case by case basis and may be required to attend English language classes prior to and/or during their enrollment.
