The University of Tennessee, Knoxville College of Law has announced the launch of an LL.M. program in United States business law.
The program—the school's first LL.M.—"is designed to enhance the ability of internationally trained lawyers to practice in a global marketplace by providing specialized knowledge in US business law," according to a news release from the school.
The one-year program is designed for international lawyers who already have a JD or its foreign equivalent.
Graduates of the program will be eligible to sit for the New York or Tennessee bar exams, provided that they satisfy each state's bar requirements.
The only other ABA-accredited law school in Tennessee that offers LL.M programs is Vanderbilt University Law School.
UT Law's new LL.M. in US business law will launch in the fall of 2016. The deadline to apply for admission is May 30, 2016.
