LLM in the USA without law degree


Emily001
Hello everybody,

I was wondering if anybody knows about universites in the United States that accept LLM applicants without a law degree.

I have a Master's Degree in Human Rights from Essex University and I'm looking to do human rights law.

Any help will be really appreciated, thank you!

Hi Emily001,

I only heard of Saint Thomas University school of law offering a Master of Laws in Intercultural Human Rights (LL.M.). generally speaking you need a Juris Doctor (J.D.) degree or similar foreign qualifications in the field of law but very rarely, admission may be granted to holders of a bachelor's degree or its foreign equivalent, who have shown an outstanding commitment to the cause of human rights and human dignity. For Non-Lawyers this program does not prepare or qualify to engage in the practice of law or sit the bar.

Hi Emily001,

I believe to pursue an LL.M. in the USA without a law degree is very unusual. If you will find one at all, they require either to do a joint program (J.D./ LL.M.) so you catch up or you need to have worked in a law envoironment for a substantial amount of time.
British Universities are different. There are a few that take on students without a law degree.
