Application and Fees

Main Content

The 2023 SILLC application deadline is Friday, May 12.

The 2023 tuition fee for the SILLC program is $4,880. The application fee, to accompany the application form, is $175. The application fee is non-refundable and does not apply to tuition, but is strictly for processing the application. Wire transfer instructions will be provided to applicants upon the receipt of their application form. A non-refundable deposit of $500 will secure the applicant’s position after admission and will be applied to the tuition fee.

While there are no specific requirements for English language proficiency to be eligible for the Institute, applicants are asked to provide their TOEFL or IELTS score or a short description of their English language experience/education on the application form, and each application is reviewed on a case-by-case basis. Upon admission to the program, however, students will be asked to provide their TOEFL or IELTS score as a requirement of the U.S. visa application process.

Personal expenses, including housing, utilities, food, and so on, are not included. Students must make their own arrangements for housing.

Applications for the 2023 SILLC should be received by May 12, 2023. Complete the online application here and then send a current resume and the $175 application fee, payable to Duke Law School, to:
