Like this.

\documentclass{article}
\begin{document}
\begin{itemize}
\addtolength\itemsep{-4mm}
\item The first
\item The second
\end{itemize}
\end{document}

With enumitem: add this to your preamble

\usepackage{enumitem}
\setlist[itemize]{noitemsep}

or

\setlist[itemize]{itemsep=some length}

If you want it only for a specific list, write in the body of the document:

\begin{itemize}[noitemsep]    
\item    
...    
\end{itemize}

  • enumitem is not require \addtolength\itemsep{-4mm} will suffice. So accepting the other answer. Thanks

  • Sure, but if you change the font size, you'll have to adapt \addtolength\itemsep}.

  • Use font-size dependent units to make it font-size independent. \ex is the vertical unit corresponding to the current height of "x". \baselineskip is the vertical unit corresponding to the current line spacing.
