Pepperdine Law seeks motivated, ethically responsible candidates to apply to our online master’s degree programs. Our academically rigorous programs are designed to prepare professionals with the legal knowledge and skills to advance their careers, so students will need to exhibit a strong work ethic and efficient time management skills to meet the challenge.

Application Deadlines

Our admissions committee reviews applications on a rolling basis. There are typically three cohort start dates per year and two deadlines for each cohort—priority and final. Students who submit an application by the priority deadline will receive an earlier admissions decision, allowing them to register for classes sooner. Please contact an admissions counselor before submitting your priority application in order to receive an application fee waiver.
