LL.M. Program Basics

  • All LL.M. students must complete 24 credits.  Most students enrolled in the in-residence programs complete the degree in 2-3 semesters.   Students in the hybrid LL.M. complete the LL.M. program in 18 months.  Students can study part-time, but they must complete the degree within 5 years of their matriculation date. 
  • Students who are on student visas must enroll in at least 8 credits per semester; however, they can take fewer credits in their final semester.
  • The in-residence LL.M. programs offer either a research track, which requires a paper, or a practical skills track, which requires an externship.
