Texas Tech LL.M. Information

All LL.M. applicants are eligible for a competitive $1,000 scholarship to help students qualify for resident tuition, rather than non-resident tuition. Highly-qualified LL.M. applicants will also be considered for special recognition as one of a limited number of Dean’s Scholars. A Dean’s Scholar is awarded an ad-ditional scholarship. 
Some applicants may qualify for "advanced standing" based upon prior courses taken in the area of U.S. law or U.S. common law. Qualifying students are given up to six hours of credit toward their LL.M. degree for courses taken prior to enrollment, which could result in substantial savings of time and financial resources.

Texas Tech University School of Law New to Legal-Ease International LLM Line-up!

We are proud to include Texas Tech University School of Law as the newest member of the Legal-Ease International website family.

Texas Tech University is a major research university offering more than 100 master’s degree programs and over 50 doctoral programs.  More than 32,000 students attend the University including 1,250 from 100 countries. With an enrollment of about 700 students, the ABA-accredited and 18th-ranked “Best Value” law school is consistently recognized for its personal touch, recently ranking 3rd among U.S. law schools for its professor accessibility.

Tech’s LL.M. degree is a 24-credit program designed to offer advanced study in American law to non-U.S. lawyers or students who have earned their first/basic law degree from a non-U.S. law school. Students create a program of study that meets their particular needs, allowing them to focus on one of the many areas in which we provide expertise, such as energy law or U.S. business law.  Except for two required courses, LL.M. students attend their law classes with American J.D. students, providing a diverse educational experience and offering important networking opportunities.  No thesis is required for graduation; however, students may select courses requiring writing projects and/or an independent study that requires the production of a major paper.

Lubbock is in the heart of West Texas where Midwestern values are blended with rugged independence and Southwestern customs.  Lubbock has all the amenities of a major city, but the feel and values of a small town.
