The broad curriculum is taught by expert faculty members who are seasoned educators, practitioners, and scholars who share a zeal for teaching and are ready to help their students define their own career direction. The coursework recognizes the increasing globalization of the practice of law – whether specializing in comparative law, business law and transactions, or human rights law.
Program activities ensure a high degree of individual attention. All students benefit from individual counseling with a faculty member, administrative staff, Office of Career Planning counselors, and alums who are practicing attorneys. Students attend hearings and other legal proceedings, as well as participate in numerous networking and social events.
The degree may be completed in two full-time semesters (August – May). Graduates of the LLM Program may be eligible to take the bar exam in a number of U.S. states, including California and NY. Although students are responsible for researching eligibility requirements, which vary by state, they should inform their academic advisers at the beginning of the fall semester to discuss bar-related courses that they might choose to take.
