Except in extraordinary circumstances, a J.D. degree is required for admission in the LLM program.

At least one letter of recommendation should be from a law school professor. References should use the LSAC Letter of Recommendation Service.
Mercer University School of Law requires that foreign transcripts be submitted through the LLM Credential Assembly Service. If you completed more than one year of postsecondary work outside the US (including its territories) or Canada, you must use the International Transcript Authentication and Evaluation Service offered through LLM CAS for the evaluation of your foreign transcripts. This service must be purchased for $125, in addition to the Document Assembly Service $75 registration fee. An International Credential Evaluation will be completed by the American Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers, which will be incorporated into your LLM CAS law school report. Applicants whose native language is not English, and whose JD education is from outside the US, are required to submit a Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) score. If this applies to you, you must contact the Educational Testing Service (ETS) and request that your TOEFL score be sent to LSAC. Your score will be included in the credential evaluation document that will be included in your law school report.
Law school performance is very important in determining admission to Mercer University School of Law's LLM program, but other factors will be considered as well.
Partial merit scholarships will be awarded to applicants whose exceptional personal attributes, as well as academic credentials, indicate that they will make an extraordinary contribution to Mercer University School of Law and to the legal profession. We will review your statement of interest, transcripts, letter of recommendations, community service, and work experience.
