Indiana University's McKinney School of Law has announced plans to add a semester-long global residency option to its LL.M. program.
Students pursuing the new residency will be able to spend a semester abroad, in their home countries or elsewhere.
The LL.M. students who choose to pursue this option will spend the fall semester taking face-to-face classes on the IU McKinney's campus. They'll then travel home or to another country for the spring semester and finish the program online.
This new residency option is available to students taking part in either the American Law for Foreign Lawyers track, or the Corporate and Commercial Law track
According to the school, the new residency option is ideal for working professionals who may have trouble living in the US for nine months.
The new LL.M. residency option will launch in the fall 2017.
