The Master of Comparative Law is currently offered in partner with Shanghai Jiao Tong University, Koguan Law School and offers students the opportunity to engage in a one-year comparative law experience, spending a semester of full-time enrollment at each law school. The program is open to individuals who have earned a first degree in law or are licensed to practice. Candidates must apply through Koguan Law School and admission decisions are made collaboratively with Emory Law.

The following items are required to complete the application:

  • Application form and fee
  • Interview (by invitation)
  • TOEFL or IELTS score (beginning for admission in the Spring 2020 term)

Students whose native language is not English and students from non-English standard countries must submit either an official TOEFL Score Report (Test of English as a Foreign Language) from Educational Testing Service (if applicable) or an official IELTS score report with their application. A TOEFL score of 600 on the paper-based test, 100 on the Internet-based test, or 250 on the computer-based test or an IELTS score of 7.0 is expected.
