Step 1: Choose a Program
Full-time LL.M. Programs in New York City and Singapore
Full-time programs in New York begin in the Fall 2013 semester only, and the dual-degree program in Singapore begins in May 2013. Applicants may apply to study in New York City, in Singapore, or in both locations. Scholarship opportunities are available in both New York City and Singapore. Applicants who apply to both locations must indicate their preference between the two locations. The Committee on Graduate Admissions will attempt to honor an applicant’s preference as to location of study and to place admitted LL.M. applicants in their preferred location. If an applicant is admitted to his or her preferred location, the Committee does not guarantee consideration for his or her second-choice location.
Applicants to New York City must choose either the traditional LL.M. or one of the following specializations:
- Competition, Innovation and Information Law
- Corporation Law
- Environmental Law
- International Business Regulation, Litigation and Arbitration
- International Legal Studies
- International Taxation
- Legal Theory; or
Students enrolled in NYU@NUS complete two master’s degrees, the LL.M. in Global Business Law from NYU and another from the National University of Singapore. For the second LL.M. through NUS, applicants must choose whether they wish to pursue their master’s degree with or without a specialization. If they choose to pursue the degree with a specialization they may choose one of the following areas: Asian Legal Studies, Corporate & Financial Services Law, Intellectual Property & Technology Law, International & Comparative Law, or Maritime Law. Prospective dual-degree program students apply only to NYU in order to be considered for NYU@NUS.
Eligible applicants may apply to our New York City based dual degree programs; and all students admitted to New York City may be interested in applying to the Transitional Justice Leadership program a selective program pursued in conjunction with the LL.M. degree.
Part-time LL.M., E-LL.M. and A.P.C. Programs
Prospective students applying for part-time study must indicate whether they want to be considered for Spring 2013 or Fall 2013 entry (refer to appropriate deadline). Applicants choose the Executive LL.M. in Taxation, the A.P.C. in Taxation, or one of the following on-campus LL.M. programs:
- Traditional LL.M.;
- Competition, Innovation and Information Law;
- Environmental Law;
- International Legal Studies; or
A.P.C. in Taxation applicants must additionally indicate whether they want to concentrate their coursework in Corporate Taxation, Estate Planning, or International Taxation.
Note: Not all classes are offered after regular working hours, and all final exams must be taken at the scheduled time. If a required class or a desired class does not meet in the evening, it is expected that part-time students adjust their work schedules to meet all regular class attendance requirements, and to take final examinations at the scheduled times. Students should not register for classes without clearing the examination schedule with employers.
Applicants to the J.S.D. should indicate on the application if they wish to be considered for admission to the full-time LL.M. program in New York City in the event they are not admitted to the J.S.D. degree. Applicants should note that admission to the LL.M. program does not assure admission to J.S.D. candidacy.
