LL.M. & J.D./LL.M. Application Procedures

Loyola Law's LL.M. Program is open to J.D. graduates and international lawyers. 

Loyola Law students have the option of completing a joint J.D./LL.M. in seven semesters. Students must apply and be accepted into both programs by the beginning of their last semester in the J.D. program. Scholarships and financial aid are available. 

To apply, please submit the following documents to our J.D./LL.M. application:

  • Statement of interest
  • Loyola College of Law transcript
  • One letter of recommendation, written by a Loyola College of Law faculty member

At this time, only students enrolled in Loyola Law's J.D. program are eligible to enroll in this joint program. Scholarships and financial aid are available and will be awarded following acceptance.

* 3Ls and 4Ls graduating in May 2023 must apply by April 29, 2023 to be eligible. Joint degree students will complete their requirements for the J.D. in the spring semester and may sit for a bar examination in summer before returning to complete the LL.M. semester.

To apply, please submit an application, which includes statement of interest, a current résumé, official transcripts from every post-secondary school you have ever attended, and two letters of recommendation. Scholarships and financial aid are available and will be awarded following acceptance, if applicable.

If your school will not issue an e-transcript, you may have a hard copy mailed to the following address:
