The LL.M. in Comparative Law degree is designed for graduates of foreign law schools who want to enhance their understanding of the American legal system and the English common law system from which it evolved. Requirements for this degree are given in the Graduate Degrees   section of this catalog.

The program begins with Introduction to the Legal System of the United States for LLM in Comparative Law Part I, a 2-credit summer course that gives students a foundation in the American legal process. It also helps students acclimate to the College of Law and the University community before to the start of the academic year. During the fall and spring terms, the students complete an additional 2 credits of comparative studies plus 2 credits for legal research and writing.  With the director’s approval, students choose their remaining 20 credits from more than 100 Juris Doctor courses and seminars.
