LL.M. Program Tuition and Visa Information

Tuition

Official fees for attendance in the 2022-2023 LL.M. Program are as follows:

  • Tuition: $67,248.00
  • Health Insurance: $4,714.06* 
  • Mandatory Health Facilities Fees: $238.00
  • UC Graduate and Professional Council Fee: $3.50** (Spring semester only)

All fees are charged to students in two equal installments, with the first installment due in mid-August and the remainder due in mid-December. Alternatively, students may enroll in the BruinPay Plan to pay tuition and fees in monthly installments.

Tuition costs are identical for both international and domestic students. California residents are not eligible for discounted tuition. LL.M. students may pursue financial aid resources to help supplement the cost of attendance.

*Students who have health insurance which will provide coverage for the duration of the LL.M. Program may apply for a waiver of UCLA's health insurance fees. Before purchasing alternative insurance coverage, students should carefully review the waiver criteria.

**The UC Graduate and Professional Council (UCGPC) Fee is a UC-wide fee which will be charged in the Spring 2023 semester. Students may opt to waive this fee; waiver instructions will be provided prior to the spring fee payment deadline.

Fee Disclaimer

The tuition, fees, and charges posted to the student billing statement are estimates based on existing amounts. These figures may not be final. Actual tuition, fees, and charges are subject to change by the Regents of the University of California and could be affected by state funding reductions. Accordingly, final approved tuition and fee levels (and thus a student’s final balance due) may differ from the amounts shown.

Some or all instruction for all or part of the academic year may be delivered remotely. Tuition and fees have been set regardless of the method of instruction, and will not be refunded in the event instruction occurs remotely for any part of the academic year. Figures for tuition and fees represent currently approved or proposed amounts and may not be final. Actual tuition and fees are subject to change by the University of California as determined to be necessary or appropriate. Final approved tuition and fee levels may differ from the amounts presented.

Visa Information

If you accept UCLA's offer of admission, the UCLA Dashew Center for International Students and Scholars will email you instructions for applying online for an I-20 form. Along with your I-20 application, you will be required to submit electronic copies of your passport, as well as financial documentation which demonstrates that you possess the necessary funds to pay for the costs of tuition and living expenses. After receiving and processing these items, the Dashew Center will issue your I-20 form, and the law school will send it to you. After receiving the I-20 form, you must apply for an F-1 student visa through the U.S. embassy or consulate in your country of residence in order to obtain authorization to enter the United States. Please apply for your visa well in advance of the date you intend to travel to the United States, as some embassies and consulates take several weeks (or even months) to process visa requests.
