Important Announcement: Program Update

Admission to all NYU Master of Laws degrees is highly selective. Last year, the Law School received more than 2,700 full-time LLM applications for the various programs. The New York City class was about 425 students, and the Singapore class has averaged about 40 students annually for the last five years of the program. Those admitted have excellent law school records and strong academic and/or professional recommendations. Evidence of significant professional accomplishment is also taken into consideration.

All prospective students applying are required to use the Law School Admission Council (LSAC) LLM Credential Assembly Service, which includes the NYU Law Electronic Application, the Document Assembly Service, and the International Transcript and Authentication Service (if applicable).
