A New Cross-Border Legal Studies LL.M. from the University of Buffalo School of Law

The cross-border program will make use of the school's proximity to Canada

From fall 2017 the first students will be admitted to the University of Buffalo's new Cross-Border Legal Studies LL.M. program, which aims to prepare students for cross-border legal interactions in their future careers.

The program will cover various kinds of cross-border legal issues including trade, tax, immigration, real estate and corporate law.

The University of Buffalo is located in New York state, just 20 minutes from the border with Ontario, Canada.

The program aims to make use of its unique location by exposing students to legal interactions playing out across this border.

The school says many of its alumni already deal in these kinds of cases both in Buffalo and Ontario, so the program's focus makes sense for students hoping to make connections and work in the region.

International students are also welcome to apply for the program; they will be offered a legal writing and research class, as well as an introduction to the US legal system.

Graduates with a first law degree may apply for the program. More information is available on the program website.
