Application Requirements

The evaluation will be pursued, grounded upon the undergraduate GPA, as well as the oral exam score of the candidate.

Those who are not Law School graduates  are also admitted to the LL.M Programs. However, at the end of the program, they receive MA degree instead of LL.M.

  • Transcripts 

A minimum 2.75 GPA is recommended .

We strongly encourage applicants to submit a scanned image of the transcript at the time of application, which can speed processing; however, a final, official transcript will be required of all admitted students during registration. Applicants who have attended international institutions must submit transcripts or certified attestations of study, with certified English translations. Once translated, the original transcript and the certified translations are to be sent to the Graduate School admission office.


All native applicants and international applicants whose native language is not English must ensure that the Graduate School receives their official score from the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL).
