LL.M. Admissions

The University of Georgia LL.M. Program is excited to announce that foreign educated lawyers who complete an LL.M. program are now able to take the Georgia Bar Examination!

Georgia joins New York and California as one of the only states to allow LL.M. students to take the state Bar Examination. The Supreme Court of Georgia amended its rules regarding who is eligible to sit for the Georgia Bar Examination to include foreign educated attorneys who complete an LL.M. degree.

This means that if you enter the 2014-2015 LL.M. class at the University of Georgia School of Law, you will be able to take the Georgia Bar Examination upon completion of your LL.M. degree.  If you pass the Georgia Bar Examination and are admitted to the Bar, you will be a fully licensed attorney and able to practice law in Georgia.


We are also excited to announce a new degree offering for LL.M. students: LL.M./Masters of Business Administration!

The LL.M./M.B.A. can be completed in only two-and-a-half (2.5) years. This exciting option is made possible through a partnership between the School of Law and the Terry College of Business. The LL.M./M.B.A. joint-degree can prepare you to be a leader in today’s global economy.


The application for the 2014 - 2015 LL.M. Program is now available. Due to increased interest we are extending our application deadline to May 15, 2014.

We welcome your interest in the LL.M. Program at the University of Georgia School of Law. Our LL.M. Program offers:

  • exceptional value  
  • freedom to select among several areas of law for concentrated study 
  • a choice between an all-courses curriculum and one in which students write a supervised research paper 
  • the advantage of a comprehensive curriculum that covers all of the major subject areas of United States law
  • a welcoming environment in a picturesque college town with a low cost of living and close proximity to Atlanta

One of the principal attractions of Georgia Law is the friendly and informal interchange between the members of the faculty and LL.M. and J.D. students.  

LL.M. students come from all over the world and have many opportunities to interact with Georgia Law's J.D. students whose admissions credentials place them in the top 6% of all law students nationally.

Enrollment is limited to ensure that faculty and staff are able to give each LL.M. student individual assistance and support.
