Georgia State LLM Cirriculum

LL.M. Curriculum and Program Tracks

Georgia State Law’s LL.M. Program for Foreign-Trained Lawyers builds on our J.D. program, which has achieved national distinction in a relatively short time.
LL.M. graduates will be well equipped to assume leadership positions in their legal institutions, including law firms with an international practice, the judiciary and government, and in law faculties and those of related disciplines in their home countries. Our program will help you achieve this through:
  • teaching you the skills essential to practicing American law
  • enhancing how you counsel clients when negotiating with U.S. businesses and entities
  • offering you internship interaction with U.S. lawyers
  • facilitating a means to create your global network of contacts
  • providing opportunities to refine and validate your English language skills
The LL.M. program has two tracks:
  • FLEXIBLE STUDIES (Track 1) enables students to customize their study and concentrate in particular areas, such as intellectual property, health law, land use and urban growth, conflict resolution and others, or to personalize their studies.
  • BAR PREPARATION (Track 2) allows students to focus on the requirements necessary to sit for a bar exam in a qualifying state, such as Georgia or New York. Georgia now allows foreign-trained lawyers to sit for its exam after completing a bar-focused LL.M. curriculum.
Both tracks include skills-training options.
Full-time LL.M. students must complete the program in nine months.
The LL.M. program director must approve each LL.M. student’s course schedule in advance. No exceptions.
