The admissions process

Required supporting documents

Upload your documents as early as possible: the Graduate Admissions Committee only reviews files with completed supporting documents. Only required supporting documents will be added to your file. Please refrain from sending other items, as these will not be considered part of your admissions file.

After completing the online application, candidates must upload all their required supporting documents via uApply. For detailed instructions on how to upload required supporting documents, please see McGill's Future Graduate Students site on Preparing to apply.

Your application has been recommended

The Graduate Admissions Committee of the Faculty of Law reviews the candidate's application file only once it is complete. Once a recommendation is reached by that Committee, the applicant is informed. A decision not to admit is a final decision. However, a decision to recommend admission is provisional: final approval and the formal offer of admission come from the Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies of McGill University.

If you receive an offer of admission

Upon official notification of acceptance by the Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies, students will be asked to confirm their place by making a deposit. As per the acceptance letter from the Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies, please access uApply to confirm or decline the offer of admission and pay the deposit of $300 Canadian via credit card - Visa, MasterCard and American Express are accepted. This deposit is applied against the student's tuition fees and is not refundable.

Students should consult the Admitted Students section for more information about the next steps.
