Questions and Answers on Online LL.M programs

 

  How long does it take to get your LL.M. degree online?

Most LL.M. online degrees can be completed in one to two years of full-time study and require 24 to 26 credits.

How much does an online LL.M. degree cost?

The cost of an LL.M. degree online depends on several factors. State residency is an important consideration, since many colleges and universities charge higher tuition for out-of-state students. However, some schools charge flat tuition for online students regardless of residency. Technology fees are another key factor; these fees often apply to online students but not their brick-and-mortar counterparts.

Per-credit costs for an LL.M. degree typically range from $1,000 to $2,300. Students should expect to pay between $24,000 and $60,000 in total tuition.

Online LL.M. degree admissions requirements

Admission for a Master of Laws program typically requires a degree in law – a J.D. or an equivalent degree from outside of the United States. Other admission requirements include a resume, a personal statement, transcripts and letters of recommendation. Although most online Master of Laws degrees do not require LSAT scores, international students may need to submit TOEFL scores.

Choosing an accredited online LL.M. degree program


A school's accreditation impacts course credit transferability, as well as student eligibility for federal financial aid, so students should ensure the school offering the program has earned national or regional accreditation.

Online LL.M Information at Legal-Ease International Inc.





Online LLM Information

Definition of an Online LLM Degree:
A LLM degree is an abbreviation of the Latin Legum Magister, which means Master of Laws degree. It's an internationally recognized postgraduate law degree usually obtained by completing one-year of full-time study, or two years of part-time study. There are many online options for a LLM degree. Often those who pursue LLM degree do so to gain expertise in a specialized field of law, for example in the area of tax law or international law.

Usually lawyers are not required to hold a LLM degree. In addition, an LLM degree doesn't qualify someone to practice law. Therefore students must first obtain a professional degree in law, such as the Juris Doctor (JD) degree, before the LLM program. A JD degree will only offer basic skills and knowledge to become a lawyer. On the other hand a LLM degree can provide you with many benefits in your law career and can offer you specializations in a particular area of law. A lawyer with an LLM degree has acquired advanced and specialized legal training, which means they're more marketable to law firms. Typically a LLM graduate is also qualified to work in a multinational legal environment. LLM graduates who seek to relocate and practice in another country, or expand their area of practice to multinational issues, will succeed with this degree.

Graduation requirements vary depending on the program. Typically a LLM degree is 24 or more credits. It requires at least eight core courses to graduate. Additionally, elective courses are often required from other concentrations. Sometimes programs are research-oriented and require you to write a thesis, while others only offer classes and coursework.

Different Types of Online LLM Degrees
Worldwide there are an extensive range of LLM programs. That is why online learning for LLM degrees is becoming so popular. One example is the LLM in taxation degree offered by Boston University. Rather than traveling to another location in the world to get this advanced degree you can get an International degree in the comfort of your home. Additionally, because there are so many different programs, including online programs, you can find a program that will focus on almost any area of the law that you're interested in.

Many LLM schools, both online and not, allow you to freely design your own program of study from the school's upper-level courses and seminars. There are also pre-created specializations at a variety of schools. One of the most popular U.S. LLM degrees is in tax law, sometimes known as an MLT (Master of Laws in Taxation). Other developing areas of study in the U.S. and Europe include, but are not limited to:

  • Bankruptcy Law
  • E-Commerce
  • International Tax Law
  • Banking Law
  • Financial Services Law
  • Insurance Law
  • Compliance and Risk Management
  • Fraud and Security Risk Management
  • Commercial Law
  • Environmental Law
  • Corporate Law
  • International Law
  • Constitutional Law
  • Maritime Law
  • Litigation
  • Human Rights Law
  • Trial Advocacy
  • Intellectual Property Law
  • Financial Services Law
  • Wealth Management
  • Capital Markets

There are also schools that offer innovative degrees in concentrated courses such as Prosecutorial Sciences or Space and Telecommunications Law. Other programs focus on teaching foreign lawyers the basic legal principles of the host country (also known as a "comparative law" degree). Occasionally there are even programs conducted in more than one language, which would give you the opportunity to undertake classes in different languages.

Financial Assistance Options for Online LLM Degrees
Payment for an LLM program is always a consideration.

Fortunately many online programs offer financial assistance to those who qualify. This assistance comes in the form of merit-based scholarships and grants to top LLM applicants. The first step in looking for financial resources would be to contact the school�s financial aid office. These offices will not only tell you what scholarships and grants are available from the school itself, but they�ll also aid you in the search for other sources of financing.

There are also many outside sources of funding in the form of scholarships and grants. The government is probably the first step in searching for financial support. There are many merit-based scholarships for applicants with exceptional academic and professional records through government programs. These applicants typically show the most potential for future success, which is why the government and other organizations want to offer scholarships. Some of these scholarships are offered by the scholarship directory for scholarship opportunities.

Loans are also available to students who can't pay for their education. Loans differ form scholarships and grants in that you must pay them back. Banks, private institutions, and online lenders offer student loans.

LL.M programs for International Students





Thousands of international students apply to study law in the USA every year. But how do you know if a school is right for you? It’s easy to apply based on rankings, but without visiting the campus or understanding what the school and location offers it’s impossible to know if it’s where you’re meant to be. This guide provides a simple breakdown of the top institutions in the US and how to choose where to study law.

Top Regions for Studying Law

When looking at law schools some of the most sought after institutions are located in the northeastern region of the US; many Ivy Leagues like Harvard, Yale, and Columbia, are located in the northeast and are considered the best in the country for a degree in law. The benefit of attending one of these schools is that they are internationally recognized as some of the best in the world for almost any subject. Graduating from a well-known school in this region automatically gives you an advantage when searching for a job in law.
Many of the world’s top politicians, academics and lawyers come from a background of studying law at a northeastern institution. Harvard for example is not only in the top 10 schools in the US, but it ranks at number six in the world on average and is host to many students from around the world. The region has some of the oldest law schools in the country, including NYU founded in 1835. This means that partnerships with law firms and support from alumni are well-established, and attending one of these schools provides you with opportunities that are much harder to access in other states.
Several of the top law firms are located in New York City, Boston, Washington D.C. and Philadelphia, making the northeastern region of the US a great place to find internships and shadowing opportunities as a student. Networking and references as a student can have an influence on a law firm’s hiring process. When attending a school in the northeast you will have plenty of opportunities to establish connections and start paving the way for a successful degree in law.

The Right Fit

The top 10 law schools in the US have similar entry standards and tuition fees, but vary in terms of career opportunity. Where you choose to study will likely form the basis for your career in law. If you study in New York, you will be prepared to take the bar exam for New York state; the same goes for any other state you choose to study in. Transitioning from a law school in one region of the US to a career in a different region is difficult as state law varies dramatically, and preparing for the bar exam in another state can be a lengthy and costly transition.
The type of law you ultimately want to specialize in also determines where should choose to study; for example, if you want to go into corporate law, Colombia University or New York University (NYU), which rank 5th and 6th nationally, will provide you with the courses and internship opportunities for a career in this field in New York. However, if you choose to study in California there are excellent opportunities in admiralty and maritime law, bankruptcy law, criminal law and taxation law. The University of California - Berkeley ranks at number 9 in the US and offers several specializations for law graduates.
It’s important to consider where you want to work as a lawyer once you graduate. There is little point paying high-fees and completing a challenging law degree in a state that does not interest you for your future career, or for gaining hands-on work experience in. Choosing a top institution will provide you with the opportunity to carry out a law internship in a local firm, to network and to gain vital experience for your career in law. If you choose to move after your degree and study for the bar in a different state, much of the hard work you put into your graduate degree will be lost. If you plan to practice law in other parts of the world, like your home country, before you start your degree program make sure you research where you want to practice law and if they accept lawyers with a J.D. degree.

Thinking Forward

With institutions across the US offering degrees in law, it’s important to think beyond the top 10 universities and consider the right choice for you. The top 10 certainly has its benefits, with major law firms turning to these institutions for their yearly graduate intake. However, there are many reputable law schools across the US, and because of the importance of the bar exam, the top law schools in each state will lead to opportunities in major firms within those regions.

LL.M application process Legal-Ease International Inc.




After you send your LLM application and other materials to LLM Credential Assembly Service–requiring law schools, the schools will contact us directly to request your law school report. When your CAS file is complete, your report will be sent. The initial law school report will be generated based on the program’s specifications for transcripts and LORs.
  • If a school requires that both LORs and transcripts be processed by LSAC, the minimum number of LORs must be received by LSAC and all transcript requirements must be satisfied, including receipt of the JD/LLB transcript or the completion of the AACRAO evaluation, before a report will be generated.
  • If a school requires that only LORs be processed by LSAC, the minimum number of LORs must be received before a report will be generated.
  • If a school requires that only transcripts be processed by LSAC, the JD/LLB transcript must be received and processed or the AACRAO evaluation must be completed before a report will be generated.
Law school reports are $30 for each program to which you apply.
You may purchase a report when you submit your electronic application to an LLM program through LSAC. We are unable to send law school reports at your request; the law school(s) to which you apply will request your report.
If you are not submitting a law school application through LSAC, you may pay for a law school report by adding a report to your Shopping Cart from the Apply/Applications page of your LLM Credential Assembly Service account.
Reports include
  • transcript copies, if applicable;
  • transcript evaluation, if applicable;
  • letters of recommendation, if applicable; and
  • TOEFL/IELTS score, if applicable.

Updated Law School Reports

If you have a current LSAC LLM Credential Assembly Service file, LSAC will routinely send report updates to law schools to which you have applied at no additional charge when
  • LSAC receives an updated transcript within the same admission year;
  • an error in a transcript or evaluation is reported and corrected within the same admission year. A revised official transcript clearly marked as “corrected copy” is necessary to correct transcript errors; or
  • LSAC receives an additional letter of recommendation within the same admission year up to the limit set by the law school. (Each law school can specify at what point in its admission process it will receive letters. Therefore, if you apply to multiple schools, some may receive your letters sooner than others.)
Upon submission of an official request from the law school, the original transcript(s) received by LSAC will be forwarded to the law school where the applicant intends to or has matriculated. If there is a change in the matriculation status, it is the responsibility of the applicant to ensure the original transcripts are received by the appropriate law school.

In Hawaii, being nice is the LAW


‘Aloha’ is a legal concept that grew out of the necessity for Hawaiians to live in peace and work together, in harmony with the land and their spiritual beliefs.

And as it turns out, ‘Aloha’ is actually the law in Hawaii

Hawaii now hosts almost nine million visitors a year, and ‘Aloha’ is a word that most of those tourists will hear during their time on the islands. The word is used in place of hello and goodbye, but it means much more than that. It’s also a shorthand for the spirit of the islands – the people and the land – and what makes this place so unique.
Alo means ‘face to face’ and Ha means ‘breath of life’,” according to Davianna Pōmaikaʻi McGregor, a Hawaii historian and founding member of the Department of Ethnic Studies at the University of Hawaii, Manoa. But McGregor also noted that there are several less literal, but equally valid, interpretations of the word.

“Akahai, meaning kindness to be expressed with tenderness;
Lōkahi, meaning unity, to be expressed with harmony;
ʻOluʻolu, meaning agreeable, to be expressed with pleasantness;
Haʻahaʻa, meaning humility, to be expressed with modesty;
Ahonui, meaning patience, to be expressed with perseverance.”
Although the Aloha Spirit law didn’t become official until 1986, its origins are deeply rooted in native Hawaiian culture. Aloha is a concept that grew out of the necessity for Hawaiians to live in peace and work together, in harmony with the land and their spiritual beliefs
