Liberty Law to Offer an Online LL.M. and Two Other Online Masters Programs in Law

The new LL.M. will focus on International Legal Studies

Virginia's Liberty University School of Law has announced plans to launch an online LL.M. program as well as two Juris Masters programs.

The new LL.M. will focus on International Legal Studies. It's aimed at future international lawyers, corporate lawyers, diplomats, and legal scholars who already have a JD. 

“In an increasing global economic context, American lawyers also need to know international legal doctrines and norms that influence their practice in business law and human rights law,” according to Yuri Mantilla, a Liberty Law professor.

Since the program is delivered entirely online, it will also allow allow overseas students to study without having to get a US visa.

In addition, Liberty Law will also launch two new JM programs: one in American Legal Studies and the other in International Legal Studies. These programs are aimed at those who do not already have JDs.

The school plans to launch all three programs this fall. For more information, please see the Liberty Law news release announcing the launch of the online LL.M. and JM programs.
