Graduate Admissions

Step 1: Register for the LSAC LLM Credential Assembly Service

All prospective students applying to the Graduate Division for any program are required to use the Law School Admission Council (LSAC) LLM Credential Assembly Service. To register, visit the LSAC website at www.lsac.org/llm. All applicants are strongly advised to register for the LLM Credential Assembly Service 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 application 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.

Applicants with domestic education credentials (those who hold, or are earning, a JD from a law school in the US or Puerto Rico) must purchase the Document Assembly Service.

Applicants with foreign education credentials (those who earned their first law degree outside of the US) must purchase both the Document Assembly Service and the International Transcript Authentication and Evaluation Service.

LSAC’s Letter of Recommendation Service is also required for all applicants. It is important to follow the instructions regarding the registration of recommenders, and to ensure that the recommender attaches the correct letter to the corresponding required form prior to mailing the documents to LSAC.
