1) You will have to request official transcripts from each college, university, and law school attended. These transcripts must be sent directly from each educational institution. (If you received a degree from The University of Alabama School of Law, it will not be necessary to have that transcript sent. The transcript is on file.)
2) Click the link at the bottom of the page to begin your online application. It will take you to an Admission Log-in page. There you will click “First time user account creation.” Create a Login ID and PIN. Your Login ID can be up to nine alphanumeric characters. Your PIN must be six numbers. Enter your PIN again to verify it and then select Login. Your Login ID and PIN will be saved. Do not use your social security number as your Login ID. Next you should select “Create a New Admissions Application” In the Application Menu select either the JM program (for non-lawyers) or the LL.M. program for those who already have a JD degree. If you select the LL.M. Program, then you must choose either the Concentration in Taxation or the Concentration in Business Transactions. The Business Transactions program is also a concentration of the Tax LL.M. and will require you to take business tax courses.
