LLM Programs/Areas of Specialization
Washburn Law’s LLM in Global Legal Studies is for prospective students with a foreign law degree. This program, in addition to leading to the usual career opportunities, will prepare you to work with or across from US counsel in a variety of transactions or disputes. In addition, it will prepare you for the rigors of an SJD program.
Along with a general program, three broad areas (or “tracks”) are offered, allowing you to specialize in corporate and commercial law, public law, or US legal analysis, writing, and advocacy skills. In addition to these areas, Washburn Law is also nationally recognized in areas such as oil and gas law, children and family law, law and government, international and comparative law, taxation, and agricultural law.
You will work with the LLM program director to select courses consistent with your individual interests and objectives. Together you will explore available options to ensure your goals are met. You will take classes alongside students enrolled in the JD program and develop lasting relationships with future American lawyers. LLM students must earn a minimum of 24 credits to graduate, at least 12 of which will be elective courses. A typical course will be weighted at 3 credits, although 2- and 4-credit courses are common as well.
The program is designed to meet the qualifications to sit for the New York bar exam, which is the bar most commonly taken by internationally barred lawyers.
This school has a priority deadline and has a spring start term.
