Admission Requirements

To be eligible for admission, an applicant must hold either a J.D. from an ABA-accredited law school in the U.S. or an academic degree in law or comparable from an educational institution in a country other than the U.S. which makes the applicant eligible to become licensed to practice in that country. Documentation of all academic degrees and, where applicable, a license, is required.

Ordinarily, the academic degree of an international applicant must be comparable to a U.S. Bachelor's degree (for example, B.A., A.B., B.S.). A Master of Laws (LL.M.) degree will also qualify.

Applicants for whom English is a second language must have a paper-based TOEFL score of at least 560, a computer-based TOEFL of at least 213, an internet-based iBT TOEFL of at least 81+, or an IELTS score of at least 6.  We will also accept a score of "First Grade" on the national Japanese English Proficiency STEP Exam. Qualifying language scores must be less than two years old.
