U of Michigan LL.M.の出願締め切り日が発表されました。


The completed application and all supporting materials must reach us between October and the end of January preceding the academic year for which admission is sought. Applications will be reviewed only when they are complete. All applications which are ready for review by the end of January will have equal chances for admission; thereafter, admissions decisions are made on a rolling basis. Applicants will receive notice of decision by late March or early April.

A. Materials from the applicants themselves:

Submit online via LSAC.org, or in hardcopy form by mail or courier directly to the Law School:

1. The completed application form

2. A curriculum vitae (resume)

3.a) At least one essay, the Personal Statement, to supplement the resume. You may also submit one or two additional essays, on any of the 8 suggested topics indicated on the application form. All essays must be written by the applicants themselves, in English.

3. Current official score reports from TOEFL (at least 100 iBT) or IELTS (at least  7.0)

Students in our graduate degree programs must have a high level of English proficiency in reading, writing, speaking, and listening. Most admitted students have scores above the required minimum. The English tests must be taken before January 31, and must be sent directly from the institutions to the Law School or to LSAC. If an applicant has taken multiple tests, photocopies of all results must be submitted with the application.

Detailed information about the TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language) and IELTS (International English Testing System) can be obtained through their respective websites at www.ets.org/toefl and http://www.ielts.org/test_takers_information.aspx

Unless both of the exceptions listed below apply, applicants must submit official TOEFL or IELTS scores (the UMLS institution code for TOEFL is 1839 03; the UMLS address for IELTS reports is indicated at the bottom of this page).

Application Methods

We’re pleased to accept applications prepared in any of the formats described below.  Applicants should use the method most convenient for them. However, applicants who wish to use a credit card to pay for the application fee must apply via LSAC.

Hardcopy Applications are available by request or by downloading the application in pdf format. You will need Acrobat Reader (Version 6.0 or higher will work best). The application fee must be included in the form of a check or money order (see above), unless the fee was waived.

Online Applications can be submitted via LSAC in combination with LSAC’s Credential Assembly Service.

The Credential Assembly Service of LSAC is intended to save you time and money if you wish to apply to a number of U.S.,  Canadian or Australian graduate law degree programs. You will only need to obtain your transcripts and other required credentials once in order to make them available for all of your applications. For a registration fee of $75 (U.S.) plus $25 per law school, LSAC will collect and distribute your university records and TOEFL scores. You may additionally choose to have your non-American university credentials evaluated and authenticated by LSAC. You will be able to use these services to apply to participating U.S. and Canadian law schools for a period of five years. For additional information about this service, go to http://lsac.org/llm/default.asp.
