KNOW MORE ABOUT OUR ADMISSIONS PROCESS
The admissions process is a rolling process; therefore there is no deadline to receive applications. Notwithstanding, early application is recommended given the limited number of seats in the program.
The admissions process is opened to working lawyers and other professionals with three years of professional experience. An applicant without a first degree in law may be admitted as a candidate for the Master of Studies in Law (MSL) degree on proof of substantial work experience dealing with legal or regulatory matters.
The admissions process starts with the completion of the online application form. The online form allows to save the application at any time and to attach all documentation required:
• Bachelor degree from an accredited university
• Official university transcripts (certified translation into English or Spanish)
• 1 page CV/Resume
• 1 personal statement
• 2 letters of recommendation
• Photocopy of current passport
• Passport size picture
• Application fee 125€ (non-refundable and payable by credit card or cash)
Note: English will be evaluated during the entire Admissions Process. Should the Admissions team consider that your English level is does not reach the required level, you will be asked to take an official English exam.
The main objective of the interview is to fully understand the candidate’s professional background, experience and exposure, to assess the candidate’s abilities to interact.
This interview will be conducted in person by a faculty member or administrator from IE Law School or Northwestern Pritzker School of Law. For our international applicants, the interview can be done by phone or via Skype.
Once the interview is complete, the overall application, including the interview report, will be reviewed by the Admissions Committee , which decides whether to admit or deny admission to the candidate. The admission decision is communicated to the candidate via email and will remind any documents or further information required by the Commitee.
Successful candidates will be provided with a contract, shortly after their decision has been communicated, which will include information about how to reserve their spot on the program and how to finalize enrollment. Candidates will work closely with our admissions team through this process.
