Admission Requirements

Admissions criteria include strong prior educational and professional credentials, a clear sense of why a candidate is pursuing an LLM, and how advanced legal studies would benefit the candidate.

Foreign Trained Lawyers: 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 of a students law school record and any professional work experience. Students holding an LL.B. from a non-U.S. law school are required to take a two-semester course:  Introduction to U.S. Law and Legal Methods.
