The deadlines below only apply to our in-person program. If you are interested in our online MSL program please proceed to

MSL students begin the program in the fall semester.

Fall Admission - Corporate Compliance and Fashion Law


Application Period Opens: September 15
Application Deadline: June 2 

Note: Priority consideration for a Fordham Law Graduate Student Scholarship is given to those with applications completed by May 1.

Rolling Admissions Decisions

Applications are reviewed on a “rolling basis”—in the order in which they become complete—so it is advantageous to apply sooner rather than later.

Late Applications

We accept applications after the application deadline if space is available; however, applicants considering late submission should be aware of course registration dates. After the initial registration date, course selection may be restricted as many classes close quickly due to enrollment limits. If you are admitted after the registration date, we will do our best to help you register for the courses that interest you, but cannot guarantee course availability. For registration dates, please see the law school academic calendar.

Please also be advised that if you require a visa to study at Fordham, visa processing times are lengthy and are out of our control. Fordham’s Office for International Services requires several weeks to issue I-20 documentation. If you are unable to secure a visa before our start date, you will have to defer to the following fall semester.
