Program Description

LL.M. Program in United States Law for International Students

Loyola University New Orleans College of Law

We take your education personally.

When you commit to coming to the United States for your Master’s of Law (LL.M.) degree, you deserve a school that will show the same amount commitment to you. The LL.M. program at Loyola is designed to bring a personal approach to your studies. With a maximum of 20 students each year, our dedicated faculty and staff can devote all the time and attention you need to get the most out of your time at Loyola.

Louisiana is the only mixed jurisdiction state in the country, which means Loyola is one of just a few schools that can offer certificates in common and civil law. This will provide you with added flexibility in deciding where to practice—whether that’s in Louisiana, around the United States or almost anywhere in the world. But while you’re in school you will spend the year living in one of the most international and culturally diverse cities in the country: New Orleans.
