Boston University, LL.M. programの出願締め切り日が発表されました。
International Applicants*: April 15, 2019
*Please note: the LLM in American Law is open to foreign-trained attorneys only and is only available for Fall entry
The Program Director and/or Assistant/Associate Director interviews all qualified applicants by phone (or in person, if practical). The appropriate graduate program office will notify applicants of the time and date of scheduled interviews.
- Two Letters of Recommendation: You must submit two letters of recommendation written by individuals who are well acquainted with your academic or professional abilities and are able to provide a thoughtful, thorough and candid assessment of your academic ability and potential for success in graduate level law study. BU Law requires at least two – but accepts up to four – letters of recommendation. We welcome letters from former law professors, as well as from employment supervisors and other professional colleagues who have direct knowledge of your skills and attributes. If these letters are not in English, a certified English translation must also be submitted. こちらに記載されているように、翻訳証明書の提出は忘れないでください。2通の推薦状の文体や英語表現が似ているが「翻訳証明書が提出されていない」となると、「同一人物が推薦状を書いたのでは？」とアドミッション側に考えさせてしまうため、各校の出願用インストラクションはしっかりとご確認ください。
- Personal Statement of Interest: A carefully worded and detailed personal statement of interest is an important part of your application. You should discuss your personal and professional reasons for pursuing the LLM degree. You should also include an explanation of your study interests and their relation to your previous study, employment experiences and professional goals. ここでのgoalsとは、Short-term およびlong-term goalを指します。
- Curriculum Vitae: Please include your curriculum vitae as a separate item, not as a substitute for your personal statement. 略称でCVと呼ばれ場合もありますが、アプリカントの皆さんが作成している英文レジュメです。
If my English proficiency test scores are below your minimums, may I receive a provisional acceptance?
Applicants are occasionally admitted to the program on the condition that they fulfill other requirements in order to improve their English skills or meet our test score minimums. We may accept an applicant provisionally on the condition that he or she successfully complete BU’s summer program in Legal English at CELOP or submit other proof of testing or intensive ESL course completion.
