Applicants should have received their undergraduate degree in Law, Economics or any related field, although students from other disciplines may also be accepted if they can demonstrate a good command of legal issues or equivalent professional experience. Students are strongly advised to enroll in law classes or attend a summer academy dealing with international legal issues prior to seeking admission to IELPO.

Applicants whose native language is not English are required to take one of the following exams: TOEIC,TOEFL (University Code 4492 - suggested score: 100), IELTS or the Cambridge Proficiency Exam. Those whose native language is not English but whose undergraduate degree was fully taught in English are exempted from this requirement.

Students can apply before receiving their undergraduate degree (during their last year), being granted a conditional admission. This admission will be confirmed provided that the student receives the undergraduate degree before the beginning of the IELPO Programme

If you are going to take or have taken the Graduate Record Examination (GRE) and you want it to be considered together with the rest of the compulsory documentation required for admission please note that the IELPO Programme GRE Code is 4909.
