All LL.M. applicants are eligible for a competitive $1,000 scholarship to help students qualify for resident tuition, rather than non-resident tuition. Highly-qualified LL.M. applicants will also be considered for special recognition as one of a limited number of Dean’s Scholars. A Dean’s Scholar is awarded an ad-ditional scholarship.
Some applicants may qualify for "advanced standing" based upon prior courses taken in the area of U.S. law or U.S. common law. Qualifying students are given up to six hours of credit toward their LL.M. degree for courses taken prior to enrollment, which could result in substantial savings of time and financial resources.
