    The University of Baltimore School of Law's innovative LL.M. program focusing on the Laws of the United States provides an ideal opportunity for foreign-trained lawyers to study at our leading Center for International and Comparative Law. We have welcomed students from all over the world, including Nigeria, Cameroon, China, the Philippines, Germany, Italy, Romania, the UK, Russia, Saudi Arabia, India, Bangladesh, El Salvador, Peru, and Brazil.

    Our program offers a great degree of flexibility. LL.M. LOTUS candidates may choose to complete the program in one full-time academic year of coursework or may complete it in two years on a part-time basis (depending on visa status).

    Our LL.M. LOTUS students create their own program of study by either choosing the U.S. Practice track, a broad survey of courses that provide the foundation of American legal concepts, or the Elective Concentrations track, which provides for study of specific area of the law for which course prerequisites have been met. Upon graduation, many LOTUS Students take the Bar Exam which is possible in a number of jurisdiction.
