University of Hawaii LL.M. Program

The University of Hawaii's Master of Laws (LLM) Program includes a series of special events throughout the year that are designed to give the students a better understanding of the legal institutions in the U.S. The LLM students visit the courts, a law firm, a prison, and attend many guest speaker lunches throughout the year. Last year, LLM students met with U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor, when she visited our Law School for the Jurist in Residence Program.
