LL.M. Acceptance Rates

Hi everyone, is there a way to find out about the LL.M. acceptance rates and how many people applied this year for the LL.M.? Particularly the acceptance rates for Stanford and Harvard. Thanks

Hi there - for Harvard, this information is set out in their LLM admissions page. They say the typical class is 180 students, and they receive circa 1,600 applications. That gives you an acceptance rate around 11.25%.
It’s harder to tell for Stanford - they have fewer places and each program has its own numbers (ie CGP is the most competitive). That said, I imagine the 2 years work experience really knocks off a number of applicants - as at least from the U.K., most people do LLMs fresh out of law school. My guess is Stanford’s LLM program is probably around 12% acceptance rate, but I expect the CGP rate is sub-10%. 

This year is more competitive due to deferrals and apparently a similar number of applications from last year. For the Stanford CGP, for example, it appears about 8 have deferred to fall 2021, which gives us only 12 or so spots. Same for Harvard, the number of free spots this year is likely around 100 or so (rather than 180).

Anyway, we will find out in the coming days. Best of luck!
