Candidates for admission to the LL.M. in Trial Advocacy hold a J.D. or the equivalent from an ABA accredited law school and are admitted to practice. Admission is selective and class size is limited. Applications are accepted on a rolling admissions basis, beginning in the summer.

Applicants should submit the following:
  • A completed LL.M. application form
  • One professional recommendation (see reference report forms on the LL.M. webpage)
  • A law school transcript
  • A $50 non-refundable application fee made out to Temple University

Admissions decisions are based on application materials, advocacy and trial experience, career objectives and the interview.
