LLM Program

 

WE ARE NO LONGER ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS TO OUR LLM PROGRAM FOR THE 2017-2018 ACADEMIC YEAR. OUR NEW APPLICATION MATERIALS FOR THE 2018-2019 ACADEMIC YEAR WILL BE AVAILABLE AT THIS LOCATION ON SEPTEMBER 1, 2017. WE ARE LEAVING THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION UP SO THAT PROSPECTIVE CANDIDATES MAY GET AN IDEA OF WHAT OUR APPLICATION PROCESS IS LIKE. PLEASE DO NOT USE THESE MATERIALS TO APPLY NOW OR IN THE FUTURE TO THE LLM PROGRAM.

On behalf of our Graduate Studies Committee, welcome to this section of the Law School’s web page about LLM programs generally and our LLM Program in particular. The Committee has provided extensive information here. We believe that if you will take the time to read this material carefully most of your questions will be answered.

A note about visiting the Law School: Prospective LLM candidates are welcome to visit. There are no formal LLM visit programs since so many candidates live far away; however, LLM candidates are free to take advantage of the same opportunities provided to the JD candidates—please see the visit section of our web page. If an LLM admissions staff member is available during your visit, that person will try to answer questions. However, we expect that you will have read the information on this website so that we will not need to discuss material that is already available to you.

If you have questions after reviewing this material, please feel free to write me directly.  Any messages you send will eventually be included with your application material if you apply to the Law School.

Richard Badger, Associate Dean for Graduate Programs, rbadger@uchicago.edu.
