University of Idaho to Launch an LL.M. Program this Fall

Program designed for international students with a first law degree from a foreign country

The University of Idaho's College of Law has announced that it will launch a new LL.M. program this fall. 

Students in the new LL.M. program will be able to choose an emphasis in democracy, justice and the American legal system; natural resources and environmental law; business law and entrepreneurship; or litigation and alternative dispute resolution.

The program is aimed at international students who want to focus on a specific area of interest. “The goal of our LL.M. degree is to strengthen international lawyers’ knowledge in various areas of American law,” says Mark L. Adams, the dean of the College of Law.

“For LL.M. students looking to specialize in one of our four areas of emphasis, this new program enables them to hone in on one legal area of their interest.”

LL.M. students who specialize in democracy, justice, and the American legal system will be qualified to take the bar exam.

The new program is the first LL.M. to be offered by an ABA-accredited law school in Idaho.

The LL.M. will launch this fall. To apply for the program, interested candidates should have a first law degree from a foreign or ABA-accredited law school. 

For more information or to apply, please see U Idaho's LL.M. program webpage.
