Campbell Law School and Nottingham Law School Announce LL.M. Partnership

Schools will offer an LL.M. in Legal Practice to American law students

Nottingham Law School has partnered with North Carolina's Campbell Law School to offer a joint LL.M. program.

The new LL.M. will focus on Legal Practice and will be available to American law students. 

Students in the new LL.M. will be able to use Nottingham's online resources and travel to meet face-to-face with faculty and other students. The program will also include a dissertation supervised by a Nottingham professor.

The program is designed to help American students get an international law degree without attendance abroad. According to Andrea Nicholson, research coordinator at Nottingham: “Existing joint LLMs between U.K. and U.S.A. institutions require attendance in the U.K., which does not always work well for juris doctor students."

“Opening up this distance learning opportunity is a great way for students at Campbell Law School to internationalize their knowledge and CV without missing any of their home studies.”

No information was immediately available in terms of when the new LL.M. would start.

Campbell Law School offers an Advanced J.D. program, aimed at international lawyers. Nottingham Law School offers a range of LL.M programs, including an LL.M in Law, one in Health Law and Ethics, and in Human Rights and Justice, among others.

For more information, please see the Campbell Law School news release announcing the joint LL.M.
