Application

Selection procedure for law schools outside Europe

Participants will be selected by a committee drawn from the faculty of the Amsterdam Law School based on the information submitted, paying particular attention to:

  • Your study results: US law schools require a weighted grade point average of 7.5 (Brooklyn Law School requires a 7). You can however apply to law schools in Canada, China or South Africa with a lower grade point average;
  • The number of credits you have earned;
  • Your rate of progress (and whether it is likely you will finish your studies within the nominally allotted time);

Students nominated by the Selection Committee will be presented to the host university as recommended candidates. The final selection is made by the host university itself and will not take place until it has all the documents it needs from the candidate.

If the host university requires a TOEFL or IELTS score, test results should be made available as soon as possible after you have been nominated. Ask the International Office (Amsterdam Law School) what the minimum test score is for admission to the university of your choice.

Selection procedure for the Erasmus programme

Participants will be selected by a committee drawn from the faculty of the Amsterdam Law School based on the information submitted, with particular attention paid to:

  • Your study results:
  • The number of credits you have earned;
  • Your rate of progress (and whether it is likely you will finish your studies within the nominally allotted time).

If you will be applying to a non-English-speaking university, don’t forget to let them know about your command of the language or plans to learn it.

If you cannot be placed at your first-choice school but the selection committee thinks you would still be a good candidate, we will take the application for your second choice into consideration, provided you have indicated this on the application form.

You will hear from the International Office by e-mail no later than six weeks after the registration deadline.
