General LLM

General

Program Description

The general Master of Laws program is for students who have already completed a law degree and want to enhance their legal skills by focusing on a particular field or an emerging area of law.

Launched in 2012 to capitalize on the depth and breadth of Suffolk Law's curriculum, this LL.M. offers you maximum flexibility. You can create your own track in a field of your choosing, or select courses from Suffolk's recognized areas of expertise, including dispute resolution and civil litigation, business law and financial services, biomedical and health law, intellectual property, international law, or labor and employment law.

LLM Program Requirements

The LLM curriculum is primarily elective in nature. Students should meet with the Director of Graduate Law Programs to select courses to best fulfill their career objectives. International students are required to enroll in the seminar entitled, Introduction to US Law, Legal Reasoning and Writing in their first semester. The Legal English Institute is recommended for LLM students whose primary language is not English.
