If your transcripts do not show proof of graduation, you also need to provide directly to LSAC an official certification of each degree you have earned. If you have earned other non-law degrees, please provide directly to LSAC official transcripts, with certified English translation if necessary, from the college, university or professional school where you earned another degree.

Official TOEFL score report from the Educational Testing Service, or an official score report from the International English Language Testing System (IELTS), sent directly to LSAC.

If you are fluent in English, you may request a TOEFL/IELTS waiver on our Application.

Admission Requirement

To be eligible for admission to the LL.M. Program, you must hold a first degree in law from an accredited foreign universitythat is substantially equivalent to the legal education provided by an American Bar Association-approved law school in the United States. Such education should meet the educational requirements for admission to the practice of law in that country.

A degree in a field other than law, even if followed by a master’s degree in law, generally does not suffice for admission. Applicants who have earned a law degree by correspondence coursework or distance learning may not be eligible for admission.
