Graduate Admissions

Welcome! We are pleased you are interested in graduate study at NYU.

Applying to the Graduate Division involves the completion of an online application form and the submission of required materials via the Law School Admission Council (LSAC) by a specific deadline. Applicants to all programs (LLM, E-LLM, JSD, or APC) must register for an LSAC account, and use the LLM Credential Assembly Service. To register, visit www.lsac.org/llm.

Some of the required materials will be submitted as electronic attachments to the online application, while others will be mailed to LSAC. Certain materials are required from all applicants, while others are required from only some applicants. Therefore, it is important that all applicants review this document carefully to ensure that they comply with all application procedures and submit all required materials in a timely manner.

We suggest applicants print a copy of their online application for their records, and keep a file of all documents submitted with the application. We cannot return or provide copies of any part of an application, transcripts, translations, score reports, recommendation letters, or supporting materials.
