LL.M. Application Instructions

Applicants seeking admission to the College’s LL.M. program must submit the following documents and information:

1.       Application for Admission (submit the completed form below);

2.       Transcripts from your Bachelor’s-level degree*;

3.       Proof of English Proficiency (recommended range of TOEFL of 90+ or IELTS of 6.0+);

4.       Color copy of applicant’s passport face-page;

5.       Resume/Curriculum Vitae;

6.       A 1- to 2-page statement discussing your intent to study at Syracuse;

7.       Two Letters of Recommendation;

There is no fee to apply to our LL.M. program. After submission of this online application form, we encourage you to create a free account on LSAC.org and obtain an LSAC number.

Once all admissions materials are received, you will be asked to appear for a brief conversation to discuss your experience, plans, and to ask questions about our program. Add our Skype name – SyracuseLawLLM – to your contacts or send us instructions on how to connect with you via WhatsApp.  

Admissions and scholarship decisions will be made on a rolling basis shortly after your interview.

*If educational transcripts need to be translated into English, you need to provide a “certified” translation.” A translator does not need to be “certified” or “sworn” in order to provide a “certified translation.” A certified translation is any translation performed by someone other than the candidate, accompanied by a signed statement attesting that the translation is accurate and complete to the
best of the translator’s knowledge and ability. Any translator or translation company may “certify” a translation.​

Please write to llmadmissions@law.syr.edu with any questions or to submit additional admissions documents. Candidates seeking an ADA-accessible Application Form[PDF] may download one.


Thank you for your interest in our program. We look forward to working with you!
