    Boston College Law School’s LL.M.


    Our program’s possibilities are as diverse as the students we attract.  LL.M. students choose from Boston College Law School’s extensive curriculum, including both introductory and advanced courses.  The range of options is enormous.  Students are free to pursue particular subject area tracks, such as our concentrations in business and commercial law, environmental rights, human rights, intellectual property, and taxation.  Alternatively, students can pursue our LL.M. generally and sample from a variety of areas of law.


    LL.M. students are required to complete at least 24 credits of work in residence during a single academic year. All foreign-trained candidates are required to complete an integral core course, “The United States Legal System.”  Students also are required to fulfill a writing requirement.  All foreign-trained candidates are encouraged to take a “Legal Research and Writing” course designed specifically for them.  Students also can produce a piece of writing of a breadth and magnitude commensurate with our school’s upper-level writing requirement for J.D. students. This can be completed in one of our school’s regular seminars or written independently under faculty supervision. Otherwise, students study alongside their J.D. classmates and therefore can experience a true immersion experience in American legal education.  LL.M. students also have the ability to participate in internships and externships as well as complete pro bono work.
