Description Applicants must hold a bachelor's or equivalent degree from an approved college or university; a J.D., or equivalent degree, earned with high rank, from a law school that is a member of the Association of American Law Schools (AALS), is accredited by the American Bar Association (ABA), or is a recognized non-U.S. institution; an LL.M. degree with high rank from an AALS- or ABA-approved law school; an outstanding academic record; proven capacity for scholarly work; and proficiency in the use of the English language, both oral and written.
Language Requirement An official TOEFL report. Applicants with a U.S. LL.M. degree are exempt from this requirement upon receipt of their LL.M. transcript.
Students whose initial law degree was earned from a non-U.S. law school where English is not the language of instruction are required to take the TOEFL and receive a score in the 100-point range on the internet-based test or in the 600-point range on the paper-based test. Applicants are responsible for making arrangements for taking the test and having their test scores reported to the Law School. Results are sent six to eight weeks after the test is taken; therefore, applicants are advised to make plans to take the test well before the semester for which they are applying.
