NY's St. John's to Launch 2 New LL.M. Programs

Int'l Sports Law and Transnational Legal Practice Programs begin this fall

St. John's School of Law in New York will launch 2 new LL.M. programs this fall: the LL.M. in International and Comparative Sports Law and the LL.M. in Transnational Legal Practice.

Both one-year programs are open to both US- and foreign-trained lawyers.

The LL.M. in International and Comparative Sports Law is a joint degree program offered with the Madrid-based Instituto Superior de Derecho y Economia (ISDE). According to the law school, the program "comprises one semester of intense and focused academics, followed by a semester of practice placement with sports law firms, agencies, regulatory bodies, leagues or teams."

The LL.M. in Transnational Legal Practice is designed for attorneys seeking advanced training for transnational practice, and offers concentration tracks in public international legal practice, cross-border transactions, and transnational dispute resolution.

St. John's now offers four LL.M. programs, including the two new programs, an LL.M. in Bankruptcy, and the LL.M. in US Legal Studies for foreign-trained lawyers.

For more information, please visit the St. John's LL.M. programs website or their full LLM GUIDE directory profile.
