The Fletcher School Launches a Dual-Degree in International Law with the University of St. Gallen

The dual LL.M./MIL from Tufts University and the Swiss University of St. Gallen can be completed in 18 months

Applications are now being accepted for the new dual-degree in international law from The Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy at Tufts University and the University of St. Gallen in Switzerland.

It will be possible to complete the LL.M./MIL in 18 months or two years, depending on which courses a student selects.

Upon completion of the program, students will have earned both a master of laws degree in international law (LL.M) from Fletcher and a master’s degree in international law (MIL) from St. Gallen.

Students will study at both institutions during the program, adding international experience to their study profile.

The executive director of Fletcher’s LL.M Program, John Burgess, has taught at both schools and helped develop the new program.

In a statement he said “both schools share a strong commitment to teaching and scholarship in the global context”.

“I am delighted that Fletcher and St. Gallen students will now have the opportunity to participate in a program that will provide them access to the highly complementary course offerings, outstanding teaching and different geographic exposure that the two schools offer.”
