LLM

Law courses develop professional competence in the field of law for prospective lawyers, attorneys, legal assistants, analysts and more. Ranging from Diplomas to Certificates to Courses, some Law courses require a larger time commitment than others. Each law course focuses on a particular area of law. Universities in Civil or Common law countries would offer law courses specific to their local legal system. Many universities also offer international law courses, which focus on international law or skill sets that are applicable in any legal jurisdiction.

While all law courses are diverse in topic and function, each one has its own distinct benefits for the students. In general, law courses provide an opportunity to learn from experienced professors. Law courses are rigorous, challenging and up-to-date, providing the most relevant academic experience. The completion of a law course shows potential employers that the applicant has developed relevant skills in a particular area of law, law practice or paralegal work.

Online law courses are an option for working professionals or individuals with a busy schedule. Law courses can be taken online, with all required materials provided digitally. This omits the requirement to commute to campus to attend classes. The interactive aspect of online law courses also gives students the opportunity to communicate directly with their professors and other classmates, and requires them to formulate their thoughts in a clear, cohesive written fashion.
