Candidates for the LLM degree must have graduated from an accredited U.S. law school. In some situations, we may consider students with an undergraduate law degree or its equivalent from a foreign institution of higher learning based on the strength your law school record and any tax course work. For lawyers in practice, we also consider relevant work experience. Students holding an LLB from a non-U.S. law school are required to take a two-semester course: Introduction to U.S. Law and Legal Methods.
Interested candidates must submit: (1) an application; (2) at least two letters of recommendations; (3) application fee; (4) official academic transcripts in English from all undergraduate, graduate and professional schools attended, whether or not a degree was awarded, with class rank; and (5) a TOEFL score of 600 (paper-based test), 250 (computer-based test), or 100 (internet-based test) for students whom English is not a native language.
We cannot review your file until it is complete. Need-based and credit-based loans, as well as a limited number of merit based scholarships, are available for full-time students who meet federal requirements. We will continue to accept applications and admit students up until the first week of classes each semester on a space contingency basis.
