University of North Carolina LL.M. Program

LL.M. at UNC from UNC School of Law on Vimeo.
The one-year Master of Laws degree, LL.M., is for foreign lawyers who have already received a primary law degree from universities in their home countries. The LL.M. Program in United States Law offers international lawyers the opportunity to develop mastery of key areas of American law in one of the nation's top law schools.
The program builds on the school's existing international program, which includes exchange, study abroad and visiting scholar programs, and faculty expertise in the most pressing global legal issues. LL.M. students receive legal training in American law through the school's nationally recognized centers and areas of academic strength in legal fields that are in high demand throughout the world.
LL.M. students take most of their classes together with UNC law students, sharing their international perspective with and learning American law from UNC faculty and students. Legal areas in which LL.M. students may concentrate their law studies at UNC include:
  • Corporate and Commercial Law
  • Banking and Finance
  • Intellectual Property
  • Environmental Law
  • Health Care Law
  • Human Rights and Civil Rights Law
  • International and Comparative Law
  • Public Law and Regulation
In addition to the UNC law curriculum, LL.M. students may also receive instruction outside the law school, taking advantage of opportunities in other departments on the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill campus. The LL.M. program encourages collaboration between its students and University faculty and students, particularly those in business school and international studies.

Texas Tech University Team Building Trip

Texas Tech University School of Law LLM’s recently participated in a day-long team-building trip on which they visited two iconic West Texas attractions and a major West Texas law firm involved in international trade relations. The students first visited nearby Palo Duro Canyon, which is the second largest canyon in the U.S. and often referred to as “The Grand Canyon of Texas.” The students then had an opportunity to visit the Cadillac Ranch, one of the most famous pop culture monuments located along the famous Route 66, often referred to as the “Main Street of America.” While at the Cadillac Ranch, students participated in the ongoing tradition of modifying the designs and colors of the display with their own unique designs using a can or two of spray paint. Finally, before going to dinner at The Big Texan, another popular Route 66 destination, LL.M. students were treated to a guided tour of The Underwood Law Firm, P.C., a 101 year old law firm in Amarillo, TX. There they met attorneys and shareholders, Tom Morris and Alan Rhodes, who provided several short talks on their careers and the history of the law firm and its international work. Among other things, Mr. Morris talked about his U.S. Supreme Court argument in the landmark case of Graham v. Deere in 1966, which involved patent disputes.

This is just one of the many ways that Texas Tech Law strives to make its LL.M. students’ experiences memorable, educational, and distinct.

Admiralty and Maritime L.L.M Program

Charleston, South Carolina is a high-volume, expanding port and a world-class resort city.  The past two years, Condé Nast Traveler rated Charleston the number one city for travelers in the U.S.  The Charleston School of Law is located in the historic peninsula of the city within view of eighteenth-century church spires and the busy waterfront.  By combining both historic preservation and vital maritime commerce, Charleston is the perfect place for a Master of Laws (LL.M.) degree in admiralty and maritime law.

The admiralty and maritime law LL.M. program at the Charleston School of Law enrolled its first class in the fall of 2013.  The primary objective of the program is to bring students together with the most experienced practitioners, judges, and professors who possess a broad range of admiralty law specialties, and with the non-lawyer maritime professionals who make the port of Charleston such a success.
