«  Back to Post J.D. Graduate Programs

Apply now! 

The University of Baltimore School of Law admits students to the LL.M. LOTUS program on a rolling basis and is now accepting applications. Applications must be submitted online. Applications are accepted year-round for a mid-August matriculation, but applicants are advised to apply early enough to complete any visa and language-testing requirements. Only complete applications can be considered. Orientation for enrolled students typically begins in mid- August; classes start at the end of August. New students begin in the fall semester only.

  • Please follow all instructions carefully. 
  • All materials must be submitted in English.

Visit the Law School Admission Council (LSAC) -- a clearing house for law admissions -- and take the following actions:

  1. Create an account so that you can access the application for the LL.M. LOTUS program.
  2. Complete the online application.
  3. Upload your Statement of Purpose (500-word maximum) and your resume.
  4. Arrange for an official English-language test (TOEFL or IELTS) score report to be sent by the testing company directly to LSAC -- not to the School of Law.
  5. Pay the application fee of $65 (sixty-five U.S. dollars) online through LSAC.
  6. If applicable, send an English translation of an official transcript for each college or university you attended (the original official transcripts should be sent to the School of Law – see below).

Send the following to the School of Law (UB School of Law Office of LL.M. LOTUS Admissions, 1420 N. Charles St., Baltimore, MD 21201-5779):

  1. An official transcript for each college or university you attended, including an English-language translation (with the Credential Assembly Service, you may also send these directly to LSAC).       
  2. Two letters of recommendation in sealed envelopes.

Admitted students who require a student visa to participate in the program must contact the International Services Office of the University of Baltimore to seek necessary documentation so that they can enter the United States on the proper visa before the mandatory LL.M. LOTUS orientation in August.
