With multiple applications, each often requiring their own set of documentation, come multiple deadlines. And for those who work best when pushed to the wall, a clear set of deadlines can often be just what the doctor (education consultant?) ordered.

Which is why, here is a list of LL.M. application deadlines for some of the most popular law schools (based on our data of Indian law graduates) in the world.

Do note that these deadlines are only applicable for the academic year 2022-23 and based on the data available on the respective law schools’ websites as of 10 December 2021.

Please also note that some schools offer multiple admission windows, and may also have separate deadlines for early decision/early action applications.
