George Mason Launches Online LL.M. in US Law

New program aimed at international attorneys who want to learn about US Law

George Mason University's Antonin Scalia Law School has announced plans to launch a new Online LL.M. in US Law.

The new program is aimed at international attorneys who want to learn more about the basics of the American legal system and laws in the US. As such, the curriculum covers a wide range of topics in US law. Required courses include Introduction to United States Law, Economics for Lawyers, and Professional Responsibility. Students can round out their studies through elective courses covering topics like constitutional law, corporate law, criminal law, torts, trusts and estates, and conflict of law, among other electives. 

The LL.M. can be completed entirely online, and requires no attendance on campus.

George Mason's new Online LL.M. allows for a degree of flexibility, so that busy students can balance work and life commitments. The program can be completed in less than one year, according to the school.

To apply for the program, applicants should have completed a JD from an ABA-approved law school or an equivalent degree from a law school outside the US. Experience outside the US may be considered as well.

Some applicants may need to submit proof of English language proficiency, such as a TOEFL or IELTS score.

George Mason's new Online LL.M. in US Law is set to launch this fall and will offer a spring intake as well. 

For more information, please see the George Mason news release announcing the new Online LL.M.

The school also offers an Online LL.M. in Global Antitrust Law & Economics, as well as various in-class LL.M. programs. To read more, please see George Mason's Full Profile at LLM GUIDE.
