LL.M. Application Deadlines for Fall 2021 - Law Schools in the UK & Ireland

Some UK LL.M. programs close their application cycles in December. Make sure you know the deadlines!

Applications for the 2021 intake are now open for many LL.M. programs in the United Kingdom and Ireland. You can see a list of deadlines below, for many top law schools in the UK and Ireland. The schools below were selected based on the most visited programs on LLM GUIDE, as well as other relevant LL.M. programs. 

It's worth noting that some law schools have different deadlines for domestic and international students, particularly for those who require a visa. Some law schools have also changed up their admissions cycles for this year, due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Additionally, Brexit may affect some application deadlines for students within the EU applying for programs in the UK. Check with the schools you are interested in to find out more information. 

The first deadlines close in December 2020. We will continue adding deadlines as they are announced, so check back soon.

In general, the application deadlines below refer to each school's full-time LL.M. program starting in the fall of 2021 (unless otherwise noted).

Make sure you always double-check the program's website for the most up-to-date deadlines!
