Application Process

Admission to the program is highly competitive. At a minimum, successful applicants must meet the following requirements. Applicants must have:

  • A J.D. or its equivalent from a recognized institution and a distinguished record of academic or equivalent performance; usually this requires a GPA of at least 3.5 from a recognized institution, although in some cases this may be waived for applicants with a distinguished record of workplace achievement; and
  • For applicants for whom English is not their first language, demonstrated fluency in English via a TOEFL® score of 87 IBT, IELTS™ score of at least 7.0, TOEIC® score of at least 780, or equivalent TOEFL, IELTS, or TOEIC scores in other formats.

Applications are processed through the LLM Credential Assembly Service, which simplifies and standardizes the application process for eligible graduates of universities or law schools who wish to obtain an LLM degree from a participating US or Canadian law school. This service allows the processing of official academic documents and letters of recommendation just once for submission to all participating graduate programs in law. To apply to this program, select "Special Program IU/Oxford" as your intended program of study. For more information, or to register for an LLM Credential Assembly Service account, visit www.lsac.org.

Applications may be submitted as early as October 1 and must be received by March 1 for admission to the program the following August. Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis.

Candidates who fulfill the specified admission requirements to the program will receive a certificate of eligibility for a student visa. It is the responsibility of the candidate to secure any and all passport and/or visas and to meet all related requirements and costs of compliance in order to study in the United States and in the United Kingdom. While each institution may provide advice and support to candidates throughout their study in the Program, neither school can guarantee visa issuance or other compliance.
