Step 1: Gather Your LL.M. Admissions Documents

Thank you for your interest in our Master of Laws (LL.M.) program! Syracuse University College of Law does not collect an application fee to apply to the LL.M. program. Admissions and scholarship decisions are made on a rolling bases after all materials have been submitted. The College of Law may request to hold a phone/Skype interview with you before an admissions decision is made. 

In addition to the LL.M. Application Form (Step 2), applicants must submit the documents and information listed below to LLMadmissions@law.syr.edu:

1.       Transcripts from your Bachelor’s-level law (LL.B./law major) degree*;

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

3.       Color copy of passport face-page;

4.       Resume/Curriculum Vitae;

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

6.       Two Letters of Recommendation.

*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.​
