Due to the large number of applications we receive and our rolling admissions system, it is to your advantage to complete your application as early as possible in the application cycle. Please note that applications will not be reviewed until all required documentation has been received.

If you are applying for a Certificate alongside a full LL.M. degree program, please refer to the LL.M. dates and deadlines.

Note: The application deadlines listed below are for Fall 2023.  We will post the Fall 2024 application deadlines during the summer, but they will follow a similar schedule to Fall 2023.  While we are currently still accepting applications for Fall 2023, spaces are very limited.  Foreign-trained applicants should complete their applications by June 1 and U.S.-trained applicants by July 15 at the latest.

What is Early Action?

If you are admitted to an LL.M. program under Early Action, this is not binding. You will have the same deadline as Regular Action admitted students to decide whether or not you will attend Georgetown.
