The AUA LL.M. program offers innovative legal instruction specifically designed to enhance your skills and abilities as a lawyer as well as to assist you to further develop your knowledge of law. We focus on legal analysis and problem solving, as well as legal writing and oral advocacy, and we offer a balanced comparative law curriculum which covers both public and private law topics.
Majority of LL.M. program students hold LL.B. degrees from the recognized universities in Armenia or abroad. Applicants holding BA degree in other disciplines may also apply. Such applicants should demonstrate strong interest in and motivation to the study of law, as well as basic understanding of the requirements of the legal profession and the opportunities and challenges in the legal career. Previous studies of law (summer schools, trainings), legal internships or legal experience will be taken into account along with other admissions requirements.
Admission to the AUA LL.M. program follows the general AUA procedures and standards. To apply for the LL.M. program an applicant must submit a complete AUA application along with English language test score results (TOEFL or IELTS) and official LSAT test score results. The expected LSAT score for successful applicants is approximately 135.
The LSAT is an admissions test used by U.S. and some foreign law schools. The expected LSAT score for successful applicants is 135 or higher. Please note that the LSAT is a skills-based test. This means that in order to excel on the LSAT you should practice repeatedly the skills that you will use during the test. Most importantly, the skills that you develop in preparation for the LSAT are skills that will help you to become a successful student at AUA Law.
AUA Law periodically offers an LSAT seminar free of charge to help you prepare for the exam. For more information and to register for our LSAT seminar please write to us at [email protected].
In addition to the LSAT seminar, LSAT study materials are available to you in the AUA Legal Resource Center library. You may also wish to review the materials appearing below. With hard work and persistence, we are confident that all of you can succeed on the LSAT.
