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:
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.
Information about the application process and requirements is available on the LL.M. admissions site.
