The Personal Statement should be written without assistance from others, and should be limited to three pages of double-spaced text.

そしてCV (Resume)に含むコンテンツ、さらには推薦状の取り扱いプロセスについても記されています。これらはBerkeley Boalt Hall SchoolのHPより確認いただけますが、他校への出願情報としても応用することが可能です。

C.V. (Curriculum Vitae)

The Curriculum Vitae should provide a synopsis of your educational and academic background and skills.  This summary should include professional experience, research experience, publications, presentations, awards, honors, affiliations, and other relevant details.

The Personal Statement and Curriculum Vitae must be uploaded to the attachments section of the online application.  Please DO NOT also send a paper copy of these documents.

Letters of Recommendation

Berkeley Law requires two letters of recommendation. At least one letter must come from your law professor. If you have been out of school for five or more years, one professional reference from a current or former employer is appropriate. Applicants may submit one additional academic or professional letter if they wish to do so.

To send Letters of Recommendation to LSAC – 1) Log in to your LLM CAS account and click on Letters of Recommendation. 2) Add your recommenders’ names and contact information. 3) Assign the appropriate letters to each school using the letter ID number. 4) An email will be sent to each or your recommenders requesting them to complete and upload a letter for you, or you may print the required recommender forms to provide to your recommenders if they prefer to submit a letter by paper.

The recommender should send the recommender form and letter to LSAC.  Letters without a form will be returned to the sender.  Letters processed by LSAC become their property and cannot be returned or copied.

For more information on submitting letters of recommendation to LSAC’s LLM CAS, go to www.LSAC.org/LLM/Applying/LLM-letters-of-recommendation.asp.

【LL.M. Application Deadlines for Fall 2015】: Berkeley

例年、年内に出願締め切りを迎えるBerkeley LL.M.プログラムが2015-16シーズンにおいては、1月10日に設定してきました。独占禁止法、知的財産法等の分野において人気を誇るプログラムですが、例年の出願動向からは、近郊に位置するStanford Univ.と併願するケースが見られます。そして両校の締め切り日が互いに詰まっているなどの状況が見受けれてきましたが、今シーズンに限りましては、そうした点における心配はなさる必要なさそうですね。

The 2015-16 LL.M. application is now available! Click here to apply online. The application deadline is January 10.
