Application Availability for 2016

Application and Information Instructions for Spring 2016 and Fall 2016 are now available

Second LLM Degrees

(NYU School of Law alumni only)

Students who have obtained an LLM degree at NYU School of Law and who wish to matriculate for a second degree in an LLM program must apply and be admitted by the Committee on Graduate Admissions. Admitted students who already have an LLM from NYU School of Law can obtain a second LLM degree by successfully completing the in-field credits required in that specialty and a total of no less than 21 credits. For a second LLM degree, tuition will be charged at a flat rate.

Current NYU School of Law Student Application Procedures

Current NYU Law students who wish to apply to the Graduate Division should contact the Office of Graduate Admissions directly via e-mail. Current students will receive specific application instructions; and as a courtesy the application fee will be waived.

Current NYU JD students may follow the application instructions available online.
