LLM in International Transactions and Comparative Law
USF's LLM program for foreign lawyers in International Transactions and Comparative Law is open to students who have received a law degree from a university outside the United States and who speak English fluently.
The program requires completion of 25 course units of credit over two consecutive full-time semesters of study at the USF School of Law (August through May). With the approval of the director, the program may also be completed through part-time study.
The International Transactions and Comparative Law Program offers two options for specialized study: 1) law relating to international commercial transactions; or 2) a student-selected area of American law as a comparative law study. Completion of either option leads to the LLM degree in International Transactions and Comparative Law.
All international LLM students meet weekly in the American Legal System courses, which include visits to state and federal courts in San Francisco and other events. International LLM students also enjoy a one-on-one mentor relationship with one of our alumni who is a practicing attorney or judge.
