Dear Xiaoyan Zhao,
Congratulations! On behalf of Harvard Law School’s Committee on Graduate Studies, I am delighted to inform you that you have been admitted to our LL.M. Class of 2017, subject to the condition set forth below. We will be sending out a package with your official letter of admission and additional information by FedEx in the next few days, and you should receive it shortly thereafter. You were selected as one of the most outstanding and accomplished candidates from a large pool of very talented applicants from around the world. Your LL.M. class will be comprised of approximately 180 students from more than 70 countries, including practicing lawyers, government officials, law teachers, human rights activists, doctoral candidates, and some who are just completing their primary law studies. The dynamism and diversity of this group are part of what makes Harvard’s LL.M. program unique.
In addition, you will of course find a prodigious variety of other intellectual, professional and extracurricular resources at Harvard, the premier center for legal education and research. Harvard Law School offers some 450 courses and seminars taught by internationally renowned scholars (more than 250 of which have fewer than 25 students), the largest academic law library in the world, the unparalleled resources of Harvard University, and the lively and cosmopolitan milieu of the Cambridge/Boston area. Within the Law School's vibrant atmosphere, you will find a strong sense of community fostered by the faculty and staff affiliated with the Graduate Program, who are dedicated to helping LL.M. students make the most of your many opportunities here. We also arrange special workshops, lectures, luncheons, and other events specifically for LL.M. students. In short, the Harvard LL.M. program offers an enriching, supportive, and intellectual stimulating environment, and we very much hope that you will be a part of it.
Please note that your admission is subject to your providing evidence that you have completed your law degree. You must submit an official copy of your final transcript and diploma so that it is received by our office no later than July 15, 2016.
