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.
The application deadline is May 1, 2020. Admission decisions will begin in January and continue on a rolling basis as space permits in the program.
The following application and documents must be completed and submitted to be considered for admission:
- Joint JD/Tax LLM Application
- Statement of Professional Goals
- Law School Transcripts
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.
Visiting Student Eligibility
Enrollment as a Visiting Student is limited to applicants who have received or currently in the processing of completing a JD program from an ABA-accredited law school. Visiting students must have successfully completed at least the first year of law school.
Visiting students are full or part-time students as defined by their home institution. Visiting students may attend Loyola Law for no more than two semesters (excluding the summer term). Visiting and special students may not apply as transfer students. Visiting students are not eligible to transfer to Loyola Law School.
Visiting Student Application Deadline
