Georgia State University Adds LL.M. Concentrations in IP Law, Environmental and Land-Use Law

The Atlanta, Georgia law school is expanding its offering for domestic US students

Georgia State University College of Law in Atlanta will soon offer two new concentrations on its LL.M. program.

From August 2018, LL.M. students will be able to choose concentrations in Intellectual Property Law or Environmental and Land-Use Law.

In the Intellectual Property (IP) concentration, students will learn how to apply legal concepts in different IP settings, including prosecution, litigation and transactional work.

Meanwhile, in the concentration in Environmental and Land-Use Law students will learn to work collaboratively with planners, engineers, developers and government officials, while using their legal skills.

The two new LL.M. concentrations offered alongside three existing concentrations that were aimed at foreign lawyers. The school says the new additions will allow American-trained lawyers to further their legal training in one of the two specific areas.
