Who Should Enroll?
The master of laws (LLM) is a professional degree designed for students from the United States or abroad who have a law degree and now want to specialize in a particular aspect of the law.
Apply anytime throughout the year, and start at the beginning of either of our two terms – in August or January. Your application form must be completed 2 weeks prior to the start of classes. All LL.M. applicants must have completed a J.D., LL.B. or a recognized equivalent law degree, or have credentials that demonstrate equivalent qualification through relevant professional experience, as outlined in the graduate program admission standards.
(Note: An LLM candidate without a law degree must complete 30 credits.)
