The University of Texas Law School located in Austin is extremely selective with its student applicants, particularly those who want to acquire an LLM degree. Texas Law wants to maintain its small LLM classes of about 60 students, to allow for a more specialized learning experience. The 2017 Masters of Law course has commenced in August and is therefore closed for applications. However, in October 2017, submission of applications will again be welcomed for the 2018 classes.
It is therefore wise to start preparing the requirements and be ahead of other potential LLM candidates for the available slots. The deadline for submission is 1 March 2018. Texas Law's LLM degree has the following five concentrations of study:
- Latin American & International Law
- Human Rights & Comparative Constitutional Law
- Global Energy, International Arbitration & Environmental Law
- U.S. Law for Foreign Lawyers
Just as with many other major law schools and universities in the U.S., the application for the Masters of Law program at the University of Texas Law School will be processed through LSAC. Applicants must also register for the LLM Credential Assembly Service (CAS) for US applicants and the International Transcript Authentication and Evaluation Service for international students.
The following requirements must be submitted through LSAC's LLM CAS:
An application fee of $75 will be required to register with LSAC prior to submission of documents.
