LLM Tuition

Tuition for the LLM program is equal to the current tuition charged by Emory University School of Law for the full academic year which is $65,510. Tuition reflects full-time enrollment in fall and spring semesters.

LLM students must demonstrate that they possess the financial means to pay for their education as a condition of their matriculation in the program. Foreign applicants are encouraged to contact the education attaché at the US Embassy or Consulate in their home country for assistance that may be available under the Fulbright or similar programs.

For international students requiring a visa, federal law requires full-time enrollment, and part-time options are not available.


Emory Law has a limited number of scholarships available to highly qualified students. All applicants are considered for scholarship funding; there is no separate application process for scholarships. Students will be notified about any scholarship offer as part of their letter of acceptance. Note: All scholarships are conditional. Scholarship students are required to maintain good academic standing.

Financial Information for Joint LLM with Central European University

Tuition for the joint LLM program with CEU is equal to the current tuition charged by Emory Law for the full academic year. Half of that tuition will be paid to each school. During the CEU part of the program, tuition covers the following:

  • One coach class round-trip air ticket from Atlanta to Budapest
  • Living expenses and housing in the CEU dormitory
  • Tuition for the semester

Other Costs

Students are responsible for books, supplies, personal expenses, housing, health insurance, and food expenses. While at Emory, students are responsible for all costs, including housing and health insurance.

All enrolled students at Emory University, including those enrolled in the School of Law’s online degree programs, are subject to the University’s tuition refund policy.  That includes the policy’s schedule of reduced refund levels, with the passage of additional days following the start of the relevant semester (i.e., spring, summer, or fall).  Even as to classes that start in the middle of the term, thus, any withdrawal must occur at the start of relevant term, if any refund is to be received.
