What the school says:


The Master of Laws in United States and Global Legal Studies established in 1991, is one of the first American law school programs designed especially for foreing graduate students. This is a general LL.M. program wit the goal to give foreign lawyers a grounding in U.S. law. We tailor the curriculum to the background and interest of each student. LL.M. students in U.S.G.L.S. also can earn a certificate of concentration along with the LL.M. degree in the following areas: Intellectual Property, Public International Law, International Business Law, and Health Law. To earn a certificate, the LL.M. student must complete 10 credit hours of courses in the area of law and write an Honors research paper related to the field.
Candidates must have at least a foreign university-level degree in law, and TOEFL of 93 or IELTS of 6.5. Candidates whose TOEFL or IELTS do not meet the criteria, but otherwise have excellent credentials, may be granted conditional admission with additional English languiage study and/or completion of our Summer Language and Law Instittute.
Candidates who have degrees in related fields may also be granted admission but candidates who do not have a first law degree from their home countries, are not eligible to sit for the bar in the U.S. with only an LL.M. from a U.S. law school.

LL.M. graduates who complete our LL.M. degrees successfully may apply to transfer into our law school's J.D. program.
