Duke Law School has announced the creation of a new Center for Judicial Studies, and with it a new LL.M. program in Judicial Studies. The new master's program will start in the summer of 2012 with an inaugural class of 10-15 sitting judges. It will be taught in four-week blocks over two consecutive summers, and will include a research thesis.
According to the law school, the program will be open to US judges and judges from foreign countries, thereby reinforcing comparative study of different judicial systems.
As a former judge who is now part of a great academic law school, I see tremendous benefits in bringing together thoughtful judges and scholars to study judicial institutions in the light of academic research considered through the lens of day to day experience, says Duke Law School Dean David F. Levi.
