LSAC’s best practices guidelines state that LL.M. applicants have until April 1 to accept or decline admission and scholarship offers from US law schools. Students are also free to decline offers of admission in favor of a new offer. LSAC states: “… no law school should require an enrollment commitment of any kind to an offer of admission or scholarship prior to April 1. Law schools should pursue policies that enable all candidates to make informed decisions and consider options at schools that may have later application deadlines than their own” (LSAC’s Statement of Good Admission and Financial Aid Practices for LLM Programs (), page 3).
