In general, LLM applicants are required to have earned, with an acceptable grade point average, a JD degree or its equivalent from a law school approved by the American Bar Association. Official transcripts for all credits leading to that degree must be submitted. An application for admission may be submitted during the applicant’s final year in law school, for a tentative admission determination subject to an acceptable final JD transcript. An applicant who did not attend law school in the United States must demonstrate that he or she has completed all of the educational requirements and other prerequisites for the practice of law in a foreign country.
