The J.D. is the basic law degree for U.S. law students. For this reason, SMU Dedman School of Law does not normally consider the degree appropriate for international students already possessing basic law degrees within their home countries. However, in a limited number of instances, international students who have graduated with distinction in the LL.M. program of SMU Law and who can demonstrate legitimate graduate study objectives for furthering their careers in their home countries may be considered for admission to the J.D. program. These students are not required to take the Law School Admissions Test (LSAT). Admission under such conditions will normally entail an additional study of 72-87 credit hours. Advanced credit, if any, is based upon the student’s foreign law study, not on the LL.M. credit.​ For more information on this program, email bheine@smu.edu.
