Top 10 LL.M. Programs in New York

Although New York is not the biggest state in the US, it certainly carries its weight: it’s the fourth-most populous state in the country; if it was an independent country, it would rank as the twelfth biggest economy in the world. A number of law schools offer LL.M. programs in the state: many in and around New York City (of course), but others further north (‘upstate,’ as the locals say.) Here are the top 10 LL.M. programs in New York state:

Public International Law

Studying for an LL.M. in Public International Law can be quite an undertaking, because the field is so broad. Indeed, public international law addresses the relationships—and the conflicts that arise between—nations. This often includes issues and laws that cross borders, such as climate change, human rights issues, and war, for example. This means that lawyers and others working in the field of public international law often need to understand not only international laws, but the individual laws of various nation-states as well.

Graduates of LL.M. programs in Public International Law can often find work in a range of organizations, such as law firms working internationally, international courts, and NGOs, to name a few.

Human Rights Law

It’s no wonder that an increasing number of students are aiming to pursue an LL.M. in Human Rights Law: With so much happening in the world today, from wars and forced exile to environmental disasters, it’s essential to understand the overlapping legal frameworks and laws that affect human rights of people everywhere.

Today’s best LL.M.s in Human Rights Law instill critical insights into these topics by leveraging current research from human rights centers and hubs. Some law schools also provide the opportunity for students to pursue internships, either during or after their LL.M., with an international organization or human rights-related nongovernmental organization (NGO). Through these internships, students can get hands-on experience in humanitarian law and human rights law.

Proximity to these kinds of NGOs and international organizations allows for networking and connecting with important decisionmakers. This is why some of the world’s best LL.M. programs in Human Rights Law are located in important hubs like Geneva—home to groups like the Human Rights Council—and New York City, home to the United Nations headquarters

LL.M.s in Human Rights typically cover a variety of topics, and the best programs delve deep into concepts like international law, humanitarian law, international criminal law, refugee law, and other related topics. Some law schools also offer related masters programs, in subjects like humanitarian law and asylum law, while other schools offer programs that specifically address human rights in a region, such as Europe.

After completing a Human Rights LL.M., many graduates go on to work in international law firms dealing with human rights issues, as well as NGOs and other organizations.

Banking/Finance/Securities Law

Thinking about doing an LL.M. in Banking or Finance Law? Many are, since the world’s banking, finance, and securities sectors—not to mention related industries—are huge, highly regulated, and constantly evolving. Because of the size and dynamic nature of these industries, the laws that govern them are often highly complex, which means that lawyers skilled in these areas can be in high demand. That's why the best Banking & Finance LL.M.s leverage up-to-date research in the fields, which may be produced by research centers that are hosted by law schools. These LL.M. programs will cover a range of financial topics, ranging from financial law to corporate law, and may address issues like central banks, mergers and acquisitions, and bankruptcy, among others. Some programs may also delve into subjects like corporate finance, international banking, and economics. 

An LL.M. program in Banking/Finance/Securities Law can prepare grads for a variety of positions in the financial sector: some LL.M.s go on to work for law firms representing financial services companies; others go on to help individuals or corporations navigate the complex web of contracts and regulations. Additionally, an LL.M. in Banking or Finance can help for those looking to land a job as in-house counsel at a bank or another financial services firm, or even in a regulatory body.

See the top 10 Banking & Finance LL.M. programs below.

US Tax Law

Taxation, and the laws that govern how it works, permeate the everyday lives of citizens all over the world. For lawyers in the US – as well as those based overseas whose practice touches on US tax laws – LL.M. programs in US Tax Law provide in-depth understanding and practical experience. An LL.M. in Taxation prepares graduates for working as tax specialists in law firms, in corporations wanting to plan and strategize their tax, in government and in academia. Other types of lawyers also work in response to tax policy: lawyers working in family law, property, finance, energy and healthcare can all benefit from specialized study in tax law.

Alternative Dispute Resolution

Alternative Dispute Resolution—sometimes shortened to “ADR” by its practitioners—refers to solving legal problems without litigation. As such, LL.M. programs in Alternative Dispute Resolution can help students understand the tools that they need outside of a courtroom: negotiation, mediation, arbitration, and more. Those who have studied their LL.M.s in the alternative dispute resolution field can go on to jobs as mediators or arbitrators, or simply add ADR skills to their legal toolkits.

Top 10 LL.M. Programs in Canada

LL.M. applicants are drawn to law schools in Canada for a number of reasons. Not only are LL.M.s in the country relatively affordable—especially when compared to their counterparts in the USA—Canada is also a country of stunning natural beauty and, subjectively speaking, friendly people. Although many law schools are clustered around main cities such as Toronto, Montreal, and Vancouver, there are also schools offering LL.M. programs in other parts of the country as well. Here are the top 10 law schools in Canada offering LL.M. programs.
