UC Berkeley School of Law Announces New Part-Online, Part-In-Residence Hybrid LL.M.

The one-year, three-term program will include an in-residence summer term

UC Berkeley School of Law is launching a new LL.M. hybrid option, which allows students to study online for two terms, with a summer term in-residence in between.

This new option will expand access to the program to those who are not able to take a full-year off work or live away from home for long periods of time.

The program will begin with the spring term, with students studying online from January to May.

This will be followed by the summer term, with students taking part in-residence in Berkeley. The in-house term will give them the chance to better network with their peers and program staff.

Finally, the fall term will be completed online, running until December, when students will complete a 1-unit online course and complete a 1-unit capstone project.

Aside from the schedule, the program will follow the same curriculum as the regular Berkeley Law LL.M. 

For more information, see the program website.
