What the school says:


The Moritz LL.M. Program is limited to just 25 students each year, allowing us to provide personal service and caring guidance to each student. You will receive individual counseling on course selection and career planning, along with group sessions on exam preparation, job seeking, and U.S. life and culture, to name a few. We plan fun events for the class, so you can get to know one another outside Moritz.

Two foundation courses are required in the first semester: Legal Analysis, Research and Writing; and The U.S. Legal System and Legal Traditions. In addition to gaining a thorough overview of the American legal system, students receive tailored guidance in researching and analyzing American court decisions and precedence, and in mastering an U.S. legal writing style. You can pursue a general LL.M. that provides a broad understanding of the fundamentals of U.S. law, or you may choose to fulfill the requirements for one of the six designated LL.M. concentrations in Business Law; Criminal Law and Procedure; Dispute Resolution; Intellectual Property and Information Law; International and Comparative Law; or Labor and Employment Law. Concentrations require 12 credit hours within the chosen subject area. Twenty-four credit hours are required to complete the LL.M. degree.
