Master of Laws (LL.M.) - Tuition and AdmissionAbove and beyond borders of a single legal system
Learn about our Law School Admission Process
The main objective of the Admissions process is to select students with the greatest potential who can make a significant contribution to the learning experience.
We seek candidates who are dynamic, motivated, creative, and who not only present excellent academic and professional credentials, but also possess the kind of interpersonal skills that will allow them to obtain maximum benefit from the program.
Admission is granted on a rolling basis, which means there is no deadline for applications. The admissions process will be closed a few weeks before the start of each intake. Nonetheless, early application is recommended given that admission is competitive and there is a limited number of students per class.
