The Water Resources Law LL.M. and J.S.D. programs emphasize interdisciplinary natural resources classes, simulations and case studies, a robust field placement experience, and advanced substantive law course work. Choose from two tracks: U.S. Law or International.

The LL.M. in Transnational Business Practice trains lawyers, whether they are educated in civil law or common law jurisdiction, to practice in the field of international business law, preparing them for a career in the global economy.  Choose from two tracks: With internship or Without.

The U.S. Law & Policy LL.M. program is designed specifically for lawyers or graduates with a law degree granted from schools in their home country who seek to learn the foundations of the United States law.
