UConn School of Law Offering Online LL.M. Classes for International Students

Three courses to be offered; credits can be applied towards an LL.M.

The University of Connecticut (UConn) School of Law has announced that this fall it will offer three LL.M.-level classes online for international students. 

In the wake of the Coronavirus epidemic, the online classes will help international students—many of whom can't currently travel to the US—work toward their LL.M. goals. 

Three, 2-credit courses will be offered: US Law and Legal Institutions, Advanced Legal Research, and US Law and Legal Institutions: Reading and Writing.

These courses will be open to incoming UConn LL.M. students as well as those considering coming to the US to study, and other international legal professionals. Those who pursue these courses may be able to apply the credits toward an eventual LL.M. 

Interested prospects will need to apply for admission. Those applicants whose native language is not English will need to submit proof of English proficiency through the TOEFL, IELTS, or one of several other tests. The school is not currently charging an application fee for the fall 2020 intake. 

For more information, please see UConn's Visiting International Law Students webpage.
