UC Hastings offers a few selective merit-based scholarships for exceptional LL.M. applicants who have demonstrated outstanding academic and/or professional achievement. We also offer limited need-based assistance.
The Thomas Franck Merit Scholarship is a merit-based scholarship based primarily on academic performance that will provide full-tuition for one qualified student. Submit your complete application and apply for the scholarship by February 1, 2017 to be considered for this scholarship. The decision will be made after March 1, 2017.
NOTE: UC Hastings must receive your completed application from LSAC by no later than February 1. It can take weeks for LSAC to evaluate transcripts and process TOEFL scores. Please plan accordingly. Your application will NOT be considered complete, even if you have already submitted all documents to LSAC, if we have not received your completed application from LSAC.
The Virginia Leary Merit Scholarship is a merit-based partial-tuition scholarship. All applicants who apply by the priority deadline of March 1 will receive full consideration of the Virginia Leary Merit Scholarship.
A limited number of need-based partial-tuition scholarships are available. Applicants who wish to be considered for our need-based scholarship must answer the optional scholarship application questions on your online LL.M. application. Priority consideration will be given to applicants who apply by the priority deadline of March 1.*

* The purpose of our need-based scholarships is to provide access for students who demonstrate high financial need. Need-based scholarships off-set a portion of tuition and do not have to be repaid. Students who are eligible for assistance that covers full tuition, such as the Veteran’s Fee Waiver, Department of Veterans Affairs Rehabilitation, or the State of California Vocational Rehabilitation, are not eligible for need-based scholarships.
