Designed to provide an advanced education and training, the program allows for maximum flexibility. Students can select from virtually the entire upper level JD curriculum taught by distinguished 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 their curriculum to be as generalized or as specialized as meets their particular needs and intellectual interest allowing them to gain a broader perspective on the law or to develop expertise in new areas of the law. To earn the Master of Laws degree, students must successfully complete 24 credits, including a comprehensive research paper. Students may complete the LLM Program at their own pace, enrolling in either day or evening classes.
