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.
Applicants may submit materials to LSAC at any time after registration, including before they have submitted NYU’s online application. Given the processing time involved before LSAC issues a law school report to NYU, it is in applicants’ best interests to supply required materials to LSAC as early as possible. It is strongly recommended (though not required) that mailed application materials be received at LSAC two weeks before the application deadline.
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.
