Chicago's John Marshall Announces Trial Advocacy LL.M.

New degree to be offered as part of a joint JD/LL.M. program

The John Marshall Law School in Chicago has announced a new LL.M. program in Trial Advocacy and Dispute Resolution set to begin this fall. The announcement comes after the school received acquiescence from the American Bar Association for the new program.

The LL.M. will be offered as part of a joint JD/LL.M. degree, and - taken together - will allow students to get both degrees with less total credit hours than if the degrees were taken separately.

According to the law school, the "essential benefit" of the LL.M. program is the "the development of courtroom skills that otherwise come only from being in actual practice."
