For those who received their undergraduate education outside of the United States, please note the following:
- Must have a Bachelor’s degree or undergraduate degree equivalent; see additional requirements to UCLA's Graduate School for International Applicants here: https://grad.ucla.edu/admissions/international-applicants/.
- Must submit transcripts (translation required if not in English).
- Applicants who did not earn their undergraduate degree at an institution that provides instruction primarily in English must take the TOEFL. Requirements are available at: https://grad.ucla.edu/admissions/english-requirements; see accepted TOEFL / IELTS scores below.
International applicants who have earned a first degree of law are ineligible to apply to the M.L.S. program and should apply to the LL.M. program.
Because of the prominence, resourcefulness, and rigor of the [UCLA] MLS program, I believe that being here will introduce me to like-minded peers and expose me to equally informed but different perspectives. The admitted students are so diverse, and they all thrive in their own fields.

I cannot wait to meet the rest of the program's students and learn from some of the best legal professors in the nation. I have never lived in LA, but I am super excited to explore LA with everyone's recommendations!
