Dear [Professor] [Dr] [Ms] [Mrs] [Mr] Smith
Enclosed please find my application and supporting documentation for admission to your LLM programme in International Business Law commencing in September 2011. As required, I have registered for the IELTS [TOEFL, LLaMa] test and will forward a copy of my results as soon as they arrive. The letters of recommendation are being submitted separately.
As you will see from my Statement of Purpose, your LLM programme seems ideally suited to help me realise my career goal [of becoming a lawyer who handles international business transactions] [of working as a lawyer for an international or European organisation] [of entering academia]. I hope that my application will convince you that I meet your rigorous selection criteria. To that end, please do not hesitate to contact me should you require any further information or documentation to reach a positive decision on my application.
Statement of Purpose
