LL.M. Application Deadlines for Fall 2019 - European Law Schools

Deadlines for European law schools in Germany, France, Spain and beyond

The first deadlines for LL.M. programs in Europe beginning Fall 2019 are already approaching.

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.

It is best to double-check any deadlines you are aiming for on the relevant law school's website.
