LL.M. Admissions The LL.M. Admissions Committee at Penn State Dickinson Law reviews completed applications on an ongoing basis. Although the Admissions Committee attempts to notify applicants whose files are incomplete, it is ultimately the applicant's responsibility to ensure timely completion of his or her application. While most students seek to enroll in the fall semester (August), Penn State Dickinson Law offers the option of beginning the LL.M. program in the spring semester (January). Decisions regarding admissions and scholarships for Penn State Dickinson Law’s LL.M. program are released on a rolling basis and follow the notification of admission to the LL.M. program. Our LL.M. cohort is kept intentionally small to foster greater interaction with J.D. students and law school faculty, as well as judges and lawyers in the Harrisburg and Washington, D.C. areas. Penn State is consistently ranked among the top research and teaching institutions in the world. Come study with us at Penn State Dickinson Law!
