The accelerating globalization of businesses, environmental and justice concerns requires lawyers in every country to be competent to advise clients about (or make judgments using) a range of international legal issues, including other countries' legal procedures, international treaties and international business customs. The LL.M. major in U.S. Law prepares international students with law degrees for this global focus.
The U.S. Law major provides a comprehensive introduction to the American legal system and an opportunity to learn and practice legal skills such as drafting, researching and interviewing in small class settings. Elective courses permit students to explore more specialized topics.
