Please note that we will continue to accept applications after the recommended deadlines (Feb. 4 for foreign-trained applicants and Feb. 28 for U.S.-trained lawyers and non-lawyer applicants) until the class is full.  After the recommended deadlines the application fee will increase to $100.

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.

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.
