Advanced Specialization in Law
The LL.M. program offers several different study options. Candidates may specialize in government administration and regulation, health law, intellectual property law, or international law, or may design a course of study other than those specialized programs.
LL.M. candidates are required to earn 24 credits in approved courses. Students are strongly encouraged to earn academic credits, up to a limit of six, by engaging in faculty-supervised research and writing projects. A minimum GPA of 2.0, current and cumulative, is required. No transfer credits are allowed in the LL.M. program.
Students are expected to complete their degrees within three years and to be continuously enrolled (full- or part-time) during fall and spring semesters until all degree requirements are met.
Courses previously taken toward the J.D. do not count toward the LL.M.
