Applicants to all programs (LLM, E-LLM, JSD, or APC) must register for an LSAC account and use the LLM Credential Assembly Service.
All applicants must purchase the Document Assembly Service. Applicants with foreign legal education must also purchase the International Credential Authentication and Evaluation Service. All applicants are strongly advised to purchase the required services four to six weeks in advance of their first application deadline and to supply required materials to LSAC as early as possible.
The LLM Credential Assembly Service simplifies the application process by centralizing the collection of application materials and distributing them in an electronic report to all law schools to which an applicant applies.
Applicants benefit from using this service by submitting the required materials only once to LSAC. NYU’s receipt of the required materials electronically from LSAC allows for quicker and more efficient processing for all applicants.
Electronic transmission also reduces the amount of paper involved in the application process.
Applicants who anticipate taking online classes, such as, but not limited to, those who will apply to the Executive LLM in Taxation, should review the information regarding residency to determine their eligibility. Applicants are advised to do so prior to registering with LSAC or submitting the online application.
