LL.M. students matriculating in Fall 2005 are not required to complete a graduate paper to be eligible for graduating with distinction. [exception: Graduate Tax Scholars and COST Fellows.] LL.M. students who matriculated beginning in Fall 2003 or Fall 2004 must complete a graduate paper in their field of study if they wish to be eligible for graduation with distinction. LL.M. students who matriculated prior to Fall 2003 are required to complete a graduate paper as part of their degree requirement. The graduate paper requirement may be satisfied by successfully completing one of the Graduate Seminars or, if matriculation was in the 2003-2004 academic year, by completing either a Graduate Seminar or a Supervised Research project.
