Here we present a list of application deadlines for LL.M. programs at European law schools, starting in the fall of 2019. The schools were chosen based on the most-visited programs on LLM GUIDE, plus other top programs.

Some schools have separate deadlines for non-EU/EEA students who need extra time to obtain visas, so remember to check for the deadline that best applies to your situation.
