After an applicant has been notified of admission, two successive deposits must be paid in order to hold a place in the class. The initial $500 deposit must be received by the Law School by April 1 and a final deposit of $2,250 by May 1. Those applicants receiving notification of acceptance close to or after May 1 must pay this deposit by the date indicated in their emailed notice of admission. This deposit is not refundable. Both deposits will be credited towards the applicant’s tuition and/or fees upon matriculation.
Deferral of Admission
If you are admitted, accepted the offer of admission, and submitted the $500 initial Summer Program deposit payment, thereby securing your place in the LLM program, circumstances may require you to request a deferral of admission. If you wish to request a deferral, please complete this form and it email firstname.lastname@example.org along with the reason you are requesting a deferral. Please note that deferral requests are made on a case by case basis.
If granted a deferral, your initial Summer Program deposit will be credited towards your tuition and, the following year, you will be required to submit the second half of the Summer Program deposit if you have not already done so by January 15th. You will also be required to confirm that you plan to attend by January 15th.
Deferred students must agree not to:
- hold deferred status at any other law school;
- enroll in any graduate law program; nor
- apply for admission to a graduate program at any other law school.
Requests to reactivate an application from the prior year only must be received by the Law School no later than November 15. Requests for reactivation can be made here. The applicant must submit a fee and newly completed application data form, together with a new personal statement and any transcripts or other information that have changed since the date of the previous application through LSAC. Supporting documents submitted with a previous application will then be added to the applicants file.
