Pacific McGeorge LL.M. in Transnational Business Practice

Since 1982, University of the Pacific McGeorge School of Law has offered a program leading to an LL.M. in Transnational Business Practice.  Several hundred lawyers from all over the world have participated in this program, with many of them going on to become leading international practitioners within their own countries.  A unique feature of this program is the possibility of completing an internship with a law firm located in a country other than where the LL.M. student first studied law.  Many graduates of the program have also gone on to take either the New York or the California Bar exams.  The Pacific McGeorge Alumni Association has an international section, and every two years 50 or more of the program's graduates gather for a meeting in a major world city.  For more information on the LL.M. in Transnational Business Practice, please visit or contact Eric McElwain, Assistant Director for Graduate and International Programs at

Pacific McGeorge Graduate at Permanent Court of Arbitration
Yanying Li, a 2009 graduate from China of the Pacific McGeorge LL.M. in Transnational Business Practice program, has been hired for a position at the Permanent Court of Arbitration in The Hague.  At the same time, Yanying is working on a PhD from the University of Leiden.  Soon after graduating from Pacific McGeorge, Yanying took and passed the New York Bar exam in summer 2009.
After taking the Bar exam, Yanying (“Lizzie”) moved to The Hague and enrolled in the University of Leiden's International Business Law LL.M. degree.  While there she chaired the student caucus and was active in working with Leiden faculty and administrators to improve their programs. 
Yanying comments that while there were distinct advantages in learning both the U.S. and E.U. systems, she found her program at Pacific McGeorge more rigorous than her studies at Leiden.  She adds that exposure to both the U.S. and European systems has been very useful, and she particularly praises her preparation in how to research U.S. law.

Florida Coastal School of Law’s LL.M. Masters of U.S. Law program

Thank you for your continuing interest in Florida Coastal School of Law’s LL.M. Masters of U.S. Law program. Florida Coastal is the first U.S. law school to offer the Masters of U.S. Law degree fully online, and the program has been approved for delivery by the American Bar Association. The LL.M. program is now accepting applications for the 2011-2012 academic year, which begins September 12.

Coastal LL.M. offers a high quality U.S. legal education at a lower cost and at greater convenience to students than traditional, residential LL.M. programs. Many foreign law graduates are not in a position to leave their jobs and families for a year or more to come to the United States to obtain a degree, and the costs of relocating to the United States are significant. Graduates of the LL.M. program can qualify academically to sit for the bar examination in several states, including California.

Coastal’s LL.M. program allows students to take classes from anywhere at any time with just a laptop and a broadband Internet connection. Students can log in to live classes and interact directly with distinguished law professors, and all lectures are taped so that students who are unable to join live classes can participate by viewing lectures at any time. Out of class, students can interact with the professor through online discussion boards and via email.
At $575 per credit hour, Coastal LL.M.’s tuition is a fraction of the cost of residential LL.M. programs in the U.S. Students can make payment in four installments of approximately $3700.

Coastal LL.M.’s combination of high quality U.S. legal education, the convenience of online delivery, and affordable tuition presents a unique opportunity to foreign trained lawyers seeking to advance their career with knowledge of the U.S. legal system. Please contact the Director, Aron Mujumdar, if you would like more information about the program or if you would like to see a demonstration of our interactive, online classroom.
