Reading materials are included in the cost of tuition and there are no additional student fees or costs. Admissions Qualifications: To qualify for admission to the U.S. Law LL.M. program, applicants must have obtained their first degree in law from a country outside of the U.S. Admission to the program is based upon a number of factors, including academic performance, work experience, and the applicant’s personal statement.
