Applications for the S.J.D. program must be supported by three outstanding recommendations: one from a law professor from the applicant's first law degree program, and two from the applicant's LL.M. law professors. One of these recommendations must be from the applicant's LL.M. writing course professor, who can speak to the applicant's English language writing and speaking ability. The Admissions Committee may contact the recommenders to discuss the applicant's candidacy.
