Foreign and Transfer Applicants

Foreign Applicants

Foreign applicants must hold a law degree from a university accredited in the country in which it is located or be admitted to practice before the highest court in that country. Foreign academic work must be analyzed by a credentials evaluation service. Because the program assumes a professional level of English language proficiency, applicants whose primary language is not English must achieve a minimum score of 100 on the Next Generation (Internet-based) Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) examination (250 for the computer-based test, 600 for the paper-based test). For more information, see the Application Process Summary.

Transfer Applicants

Individuals who have attended an LL.M. program at another law school that is a member of the Association of American Law Schools may apply for admission to the LL.M. in Entertainment and Media Law and, if accepted, will be awarded up to 6 credits to be transferred from their original LL.M. program. Consideration for admission will be based on available space, academic performance at all previous schools and compelling circumstances.
