The LL.M. in American Law Program's flexibility allows you to pursue topics that best meet your professional and academic interests. Aside from two required courses -- "Introduction to the American Legal System," and "Legal Research and Writing" -- and participation in a spring semester Graduate Colloquium: Topics in American Law, you may freely select courses and seminars from virtually every American law subject offered in the J.D. curriculum.
The Program's flexibility means there is no typical study plan. You can pursue studies in a range of fundamental American law topics, including any of the first-year classes in civil procedure, torts, contracts, constitutional law, legislation, property and criminal law. Or you can specialize in more particular areas of interest through upper-class courses.
