Deferrals for the LLM or LLCM Program are granted at the discretion of the Associate Dean for Graduate Programs and subject to certain conditions. In recent years, timely requests have generally been granted.  If a deferral is granted, the applicant is required to submit a $500 non-refundable deposit within 30 days.

Please note: 

  • Deferrals are not generally granted for more than one year at a time.
  • SJD students are not permitted to defer.
