International Law and US Law LL.M. programs begin in Fall 2012
The US Law program is designed for foreign lawyers and students who plan to sit for the New York bar exam and/or stay in the United States to practice. The curriculum includes core courses required by the New York State Board of Law Examiners for foreign lawyers obtaining an LL.M. degree. Students may choose the rest of the courses from those offered by the law school each semester.
The LL.M. in International Law allows students to choose their own focus area. Foreign lawyers and students as well as JD graduates are eligible to apply. The school provides model curricula for all of its areas of expertise (such as health law, child and family law, and advocacy). Students can also develop their own focus, working with law school staff and faculty to select a set of courses that suit their academic and professional goals.
In addition to these programs, Loyola offers six other LL.M. programs in Chicago, as well as the Rule of Law for Development LL.M. program taught in Rome.
For more information, please visit the Loyola University Chicago LL.M. website or their full LLM GUIDE directory profile.
