UCLA opens its LL.M. programs to graduates of American J.D. Programs

The University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA) School of Law has announced that it is now accepting graduates of American law programs into its LL.M. programs. Since it began offering LL.M. programs over 20 years ago, UCLA has enrolled only graduates of foreign universities into its LL.M. programs. But now the school invites all outstanding juris doctor (J.D.) and bachelor of laws (LL.B.) graduates to apply.

The school is also expanding the LL.M. program to include up to 50 students in, a significant jump from recent years.

“In order to maintain our school’s mission to provide the best legal education, we felt that it was essential to revamp our existing LL.M. program and to open it to American law school graduates,” said Michael H. Schill, dean of UCLA School of Law on the program’s website.

As of March 1, 2006, UCLA School of Law is no longer accepting applications for admission to the 2006-2007 LL.M. Program. The online application for the 2007-2008 LL.M. Program will be available in October or November of 2006.

For more information about LL.M. programs at UCLA, please consult the program listing or the law school’s website.
