Transnational LL.M. Application Materials

In addition to completing the online application form, applicants to the T.LL.M. program must submit online the following materials:

  1. Official law school transcript (waived for Temple students)
  2. A personal statement, not to exceed 1,000 words
    The personal statement is required and is carefully evaluated by the admissions committee. Applicants should explain their interest in graduate study in international and comparative law, as well as any other factors the admissions committee should take into consideration when evaluating their application. The statement should demonstrate the applicant's organizational, analytical, and writing skills; as a result, applicants should invest appropriate time and effort in preparing this statement.
  3. An academic or professional reference (waived for current Temple students)
    The reference letter may be written by a professor or employment supervisor and should candidly evaluate the applicant's academic abilities and/or professional skills.
    Relevant work experience can also be considered evidence of potential for graduate study.
  4. Application fee of $50 (waived for current Temple students)
