Master of Laws (LL.M.)

Touro Law offers an LL.M. to students already possessing a law degree from an American Bar Association (ABA) approved law school in the United States. Designed to provide upper-level training and education to students in the law, the program provides advanced education with maximum flexibility. Students can select from virtually the entire upper level J.D. curriculum, which offers a variety of courses taught by distinguished full-time faculty – who bring experience from the bench, major law firms, government agencies, and advocacy groups – as well as adjunct faculty, including sitting judges, senior public officials, and renowned practitioners. Students can construct as generalized or as specialized an arrangement of courses as corresponds to their particular professional needs and intellectual interests, choosing to gain a broader perspective on the law or to develop expertise in new areas of the law.

Degree Requirements

To attain the Master of Laws degree, students must successfully complete 24 credits, including a comprehensive research paper. Students may complete the LL.M. Program at their own pace, enrolling in either day or evening classes. Students may also enroll in summer school classes either on-campus or in the Law Center's acclaimed international programs in CroatiaGermany, India, Israel and Vietnam.

Not only is the LL.M. a valuable credential, but coursework completed toward the degree satisfies New York's Continuing Legal Education requirement for attorneys.
