Attention those Seeking English Conditional Admission: please read through this information before beginning the application process.
GLS accepts two types of applications: 1) the DU Graduate Admission Application and 2) the Law School Admissions Counsel (LSAC) application. We strongly suggest using the DU application if we are the only school to which you are applying. LSAC should only be used if you are applying to other LLM programs that REQUIRE it.
Please Note: We do not accept applications for the Graduate Tax Program through LSAC. You must use the DU Graduate Admissions Application. Visit the Graduate Tax Program Admissions page for more information.
