Application Instructions

The Executive LL.M. Office looks forward to reviewing your application to the Executive LL.M. in Global Business Law.

Please provide as much information as possible on the online application. Once your application is submitted, we will make changes only to your personal information (such as your mailing address, email address, or telephone number).  We will not accept amended personal statements or résumés applications after your application has been submitted online.  If any of your personal information changes after you submit your application, email ExecLLM@law.columbia.edu as soon as possible to inform us of the change(s).  

With the exception of applications from Fulbright or other scholarship organizations, we do not accept applications submitted by third-party educational advisors or consultants. Such applications do not in any way enhance your chances for admission to the Executive LL.M. Office at Columbia Law School. In fact, unless they are submitted through Fulbright or another scholarship organization, they may hinder your chances or render your application incomplete, as we have no way of verifying that the application is indeed your work.

Before completing the application, you may find it helpful to review the Frequently Asked Questions section of our website, as many common questions about our application process and the online application are contained therein.

Interview Policy

Unfortunately, because of the large number of applicants from all over the world, it is not logistically possible for interviews to be included as part of the selection process.

Instead, the Admissions Committee relies upon the insights provided by your letters of recommendation and Personal Statement.  In addition to providing us with a more personal sense of your individual qualities, the Personal Statement affords you an opportunity to present any special information or factors that may prove useful to our deliberations.
