Graduate Law Program Admissions
Pepperdine Law offers master of laws (LLM) degrees in various programs as well as a dispute resolution certificate. Courses for the master's in dispute resolution (MDR) are also offered at the West Los Angeles campus. LLM degrees and MDR degrees can be paired with degrees from other programs across the University.
The Pepperdine Law admissions process and application requirements varies by program. Whether you're seeking a Juris Doctor degree, and advanced law degree in a specialty area, or a non-law graduate program to advance your career, Pepperdine law provides all students with impactful educational experiences, community support, and unparalleled resources.
