All J.D. with Advanced Standing candidates must possess the first law degree from a foreign law school (typically an undergraduate degree) approved by the government or other accrediting authority in the nation in which it is located, prior to enrollment. However, candidates do not have to be a member of the bar in the nation in which they received their first law degree in order to qualify. Those who seek credit from a U.S. LL.M. degree must also provide complete transcripts for that degree. Transcripts must indicate that the degree has been conferred.
TOEFL score reports must be received no later than July 15 or a minimum of four (4) weeks before the first day of fall term.
