How to Apply

Completed applications for the 2017-2018 academic year will be considered on a rolling basis beginning October 1, 2016. The deadline for submission of a completed application is April 1, 2017.

Your application to our FIU LL.M. is just two steps away:

First, you need to register and create an account through Law School Admission Council LSAC at LSAC LL.M. Applicant Services , and pay the application fee;

Second, you need to upload all the required documents for evaluation (proof of foreign law degree, transcripts, proof of English proficiency, curriculum vitae, personal statement) directly to LSAC, and provide information about two individuals who will write letters of recommendation on your behalf.

Once your application is complete, LSAC will transmit it directly to us, and our Admissions Committee will communicate with you directly regarding their decision.  In order to make the process easier, here is a printable checklist of the steps and requirements.
