Program

The LL.M. degree is awarded upon completion of 24 credits with at least a 2.7 (“B-”) average in two terms (eight months) of study.


Students in this program freely select courses and seminars, according to their interests, from the wide variety of subjects offered by the Law School. It is customary in U.S. law school classes for students to participate through discussion, by faculty calling upon students for comments, and by students questioning each other and their professors. This kind of active student participation brings intellectual rigor and vibrancy to the American classroom, and the ensuing discussions are greatly enriched by the comparative perspective of a multinational student body.
