The LL.M. program at the University of Houston Law Center is as dynamic as the city of Houston itself, o ering you the exibility, professionalism, and opportunities to enhance your skills and advance your career.

The University of Houston Law Center offers the following LL.M. specializations:

  • International Law 
  • Tax Law
  • LL.M. in U.S. Law

The dual degree option is an opportunity for a student to earn two LL.M. degrees upon the completion of 36 credits. Students can begin both degrees at the same time or at any time prior to graduation. and must apply to and be admitted to both programs. Contact [email protected] for additional information.

Entry Requirements

Applicants who received their law degree in the United States must hold a J.D. degree from an ABA-accredited law school.  Applicants must demonstrate their ability to perform satisfactory graduate work as evidenced by high grade-point average or high class rank in law school.  Most U.S. applicants to the University of Houston Law Center have graduated in the upper one-third of their law school classes. 

Lawyers educated in other countries must hold a law degree from an accredited university, or be admitted to practice before the highest court in their jurisdiction.  Applicants must demonstrate their ability to perform satisfactory graduate work by presenting evidence of either a high grade-point average or superior class standing at the school where they earned their law degree.  A test of English proficiency is required of all applicants who earned a law degree from a country in which English is not the official language.  The Law Center LL.M. program typically requires a score of 100 on the IBT-TOEFL or 7.0 on the IELTS.

Tuition and Fees

The estimated fees to complete the program in one year based on taking 24 credits:

Texas residents: $30,000

Non-residents: 40,000

Financial Aid

The UHLC is unique in that it houses a financial aid advisor within the Law Center. The advisor services only law students and serves as an extension of the main financial aid department. Law students should correspond with the advisor so that all documents go through the Law Center as this will assist with a more timely and accurate awarding of financial aid. The main campus financial aid office, located in room 120 of the Welcome Center, will assist you in the absence of the Law Center advisor. 

All aid programs funded by federal and state government agencies, sponsoring individuals, or the College may be changed or eliminated at any time.  All financial aid programs and awards are subject to the rules and regulations of the federal and state agencies, the University's Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid (OSFA), and the Law Center.
