Curriculum

LLM students may take up to two co-listed Kellogg courses if space is available. Co-listed courses are Kellogg courses taught by Kellogg faculty and offered through the Law School.


LLM students are free to design their own program of study from the Law School's many upper-level courses and seminars, including commercial and corporate, international, constitutional, and human rights law.


A written thesis is not required, but students with well-defined topics may pursue individual research projects.


During their first semester in residence, students enroll in two mandatory courses:

  • Common Law Reasoning course, which focuses on the fundamental research, analysis, and drafting skills expected of U.S. trained lawyers, 
  • American Jurisprudence, introducing students to the history and principal characteristics of the American public and private law systems. 

With the exception of these two courses, LLM students are completely integrated with American JD students.
