Admission Requirements


Applicants interested in the Joint JD/Tax LLM program who have not yet been admitted to law school may apply to the program at the same time they apply for admission to Loyola's JD program.  Applicants wishing to do so should submit their Joint JD/Tax LLM application after submitting their LSAC JD application online.

Current Loyola JD students may apply for admission to the Joint JD/Tax LLM program at any time prior to completing their second JD year.

JD students at other US law schools may apply for admission to the Joint JD/Tax LLM for Visiting Students.

Application Deadline

The priority application deadline is March 17, 2017.  Admission decisions will begin in January and continue on a rolling basis as space permits in the program.

Application Instructions

The following application and documents must be completed and submitted to be considered for admission:

  • Joint JD/Tax LLM Application
  • Application Fee (The application fee for Summer 2017 is waived.)
  • Statement of Professional Goals
  • Law School Transcripts
  • Resume

All application materials should be sent to the Office of Admissions.  Admission decisions are based almost exclusively on the applicant's law school performance, considering the overall rigor of the applicant's record. Applicants will be informed by mail of their admission status.
