Admission & Tuition
Admission is based upon the applicant's academic qualifications, scholarly potential, dissertation topic and the availability of a full time faculty member willing to supervise the applicant throughout the program. The application must be supported by outstanding recommendations from a law professor from the applicant's home country and from a professor familiar with the applicant's LL.M. work or teaching experience. Finally, the applicant must have excellent English language writing and speaking ability, demonstrated by a score exceeding 250 (with minimum scores of 25 in each of the three sections) on the computer-based TOEFL exam or 600 on the paper-based TOEFL exam (with minimum scores of 25 in each of the three sections).
Tuition for the S.J.D. degree is charged at the full-time LL.M. rate for the first year, and at a rate equivalent to four academic credits each semester for the second year. Beyond the first two years, students are charged a continuing registration fee equal to the rate for one academic credit. Financial assistance may be available.
