How to Apply for the LL.M.
Things to Know
- We accept LL.M. students for the fall semester only.
- We strongly discourage sending supplemental materials after you’ve submitted your application. This includes application addenda and replacement items.
- The admissions committee will review files starting in January and continue to do so until the class is full each year.
Applicants must apply online through the Law School Admissions Council (LSAC) at lsac.org and include:
- $50 application fee (payable in U.S. dollars only)
- a personal statement
- a resume
Required transcripts, English proficiency test scores and letters of recommendation must be submitted to LSAC’s Credential Assembly Service (CAS). Do not send any documents directly to the Office of Admissions at Georgia State Law unless the staff specifically asks you to do so.
Bar Preparation track applicants must first earn the equivalent of a professional law degree or similar credential. Note that before someone can qualify to take the Georgia bar examination with an appropriate LL.M., he or she must also be “authorized to practice law in a foreign jurisdiction.”
General Studies track applicants must have completed the coursework for the equivalent of a professional law degree or similar credential, but need not be practicing lawyers. (For Bologna Process students, this is the equivalent of completing the first three years of a five-year program.)
