Prospective LLM students still have a few days to submit their applications to the George Mason University Antonin Scalia Law School if they want to be part of the Law School's January 2018 LLM classes. The deadline set by the University for the LLM applications is 15 December 2017. However, applications for students who require a visa are now closed.
Those who fail to make the December 15 deadline may opt to join the September 2018 classes instead. The deadline for applications for the fall 2018 intake is 1 May 2018 for those requiring a visa and 1 July 2018 for U.S. citizens, permanent residents, or others already living in the United States.
