As LLM classes for the academic year 2017 to 2018 began mid-August, applications are no longer accepted. However, September 2017 marks the beginning of the application process for the 2018-2019 LLM courses at UCLA.
As with many other law schools, your application must be submitted online via the Law School Admission Council (LSAC). You need only to create an LSAC account to be able to access the site. A one-time fee of $85 is required to open an account. UCLA normally requires an application fee of $85, but this is waived as a courtesy to students who apply via LSAC.
The tuition and fees for the LLM degree are $59,623. This includes the tuition of $55,569 and other fees for health insurance ($3,816) and health facilities ($238). The feeds may be paid in two instalments, the due dates being August and December of the year. Those who prefer to make monthly payments can enroll under the BruinPay Plan.
As the LLM classes have to be taken full-time within a period of nine months, students not living near the UCLA campus need to spend approximately $20,000 on living expenses for the duration of the LLM course. The tuition costs are the same for U.S. citizen/residents and international students. Financial aid and scholarships are available to LLM students to supplement the cost of their degree.
