The University of Cincinnati College of Law is pleased to offer a program of study on the US legal system to practicing attorneys and law school graduates who received their legal education outside the United States. The LLM program is designed to introduce internationally trained lawyers to the US legal system while also giving each student an opportunity to design a course of study at UC Law that best advances his or her professional agenda. Students who complete the program are better able to represent U.S. clients and more prepared for negotiations and litigation with U.S. parties. The LLM program can be completed in as little as 9 months, although some students decide to spend up to two academic years in the program. The LLM Program LLM degree students can be practicing attorneys or recent law school graduates who will improve their English legal writing skills, develop an in-depth understanding of the U.S. legal process, and hone in on the particular areas of law that most interest them. Students will enjoy the opportunity to make lasting relationships with other international lawyers in the LLM program as well as students in the JD program, to work closely with our esteemed UC law faculty members, and to network with local lawyers, judges and business leaders. Specialization UC Law LLM students generally complete the program in one academic year. The LLM degree program begins with an orientation and the first course--Introduction to Law--in August and concludes in May. During the course of the year LLM students are required to take two additional courses: The US Legal System and Legal Research and Writing for LLM Students. With the advice and assistance of the LLM program director and other faculty, students will select the rest of their classes from UC law school's full range of course offerings. Doing so allows LLM degree students to study side-by-side with our JD students and to focus their studies on areas of the law that are most relevant to their careers. The UC College of Law curriculum includes the following areas of study, called professional pathways: Business and Entrepreneurship; Criminal; International; Innovation, Technology and Intellectual Property; Science, Health, and Environment; Public Interest; Litigation and Alternative Dispute Resolution; General and Small Practice. English Language Proficiency and Conditional Admission The LLM program involves in-class dialogue about complex legal issues and substantial reading of sophisticated legal text. Therefore, if English is not your country’s primary language, you will be required to take and submit an exam that shows your English proficiency. Applicants with the following scores will be given preference: 1) TOEFL internet-based 90, computer-based 250 or paper-based 600; 2) IELTS 7.0 or 3) ELS Language Center completion of Level 112. Applicants with TOEFL scores of 85 and above will also be considered. If you are otherwise qualified for the program but need additional English language training you will be eligible for a Conditional Letter of Admission that will allow you to come and study English on our campus prior to beginning the LLM program. The ELS-Cincinnati Language Center is located at the University of Cincinnati and is one of the largest ELS centers in the U.S [-]
