Part of deciding whether or not to get a postgraduate legal education is where to get it from. It is important to consider the reputation of the law school to go along with an LLM degree. Students are assured of the highest quality of legal education at the University of California School of Law (UCLA Law).
The UCLA Law is renowned worldwide for its excellence in the field of education. It ranks among the top-tier universities in the U.S. and worldwide year after year. It is southern California's premier law school. UCLA Law offerings include a Master of Laws (LLM) program which may be completed within one year, full-time, in residence.
UCLA Law utilizes an interdisciplinary approach to legal studies, along with a flexible and dynamic curriculum that could serve a variety of legal interests. Besides the introductory seminar provided by UCLA Law for its LLM students, the latter may also opt to specialize in such concentrations as follows:
- Business Law
- International and Comparative Law
- Media, Entertainment, and Technology Law and Policy
- Securities Regulation
- Critical Race Studies
- Law and Sexuality
- Public Interest Law
Applications to the LLM program for Fall 2018 is currently available online through the LSAC. Deadline of submission is 15 February 2018. A one-time fee of $85 will be required and an additional $30 fee must also be paid for LSAC's Document Assembly Service (DAS) report, which will be submitted to UCLA Law. To help students offset these fees, UCLA waived the separate application fee of $85 that it normally requires.
Review of each application by the Graduate Studies Committee will be conducted immediately upon completion of all requirements. Admission results for the Fall 2018 LLM program will be provided on a rolling basis between late January to April 2018.
