LL.M. Programs

About our LL.M. programs

The LL.M program includes comprehensive curricula covering a core of traditional and emerging legal studies. LL.M. students will have opportunities for study abroad at the St. Mary’s Institute on World Legal Problems in Innsbruck, Austria and the Institute on Chinese Law and Business in Beijing, China.

The curriculum reflects our attempt to guide our students toward a mastery of traditional principles of substantive and procedural law, and to prepare students to function in a changing legal environment. It also reflects our belief that our students should be encouraged to engage in theoretical inquiry into the nature of law and its role in society.

The Law School offers three LL.M. degrees that may be obtained on either a full-time or part-time basis: LL.M. in International Comparative Law, LL.M. in American Legal Studies and LL.M. in International Criminal Law.
