Program Description

Why an LL.M. at FIU Law?

Our core LL.M curriculum provides foreign lawyers with a solid foundation in United States and transnational law, and advanced research and writing skills in English, while also allowing our students to tailor their coursework to their own professional goals by designing a personalized academic schedule that serves their needs. To this end, FIU Law offers several Pathways to the Profession that help our students build their law career to their individual goals. LL.M students may take advantage of these options and enroll in virtually every course offered in the J.D. program including those designed for the first year curriculum, and courses approved by the New York Board of Bar examiners, and other jurisdictions.

The 24 credits needed to complete our LL.M. can be concluded in one year (2 semesters) on a full-time basis, but there is also the possibility of part-time enrollment. Upon completion of the LL.M curriculum, students may opt to transfer to the J.D. program, prepare for the Bar exam needed to obtain a license to practice law in certain U.S. states, gain work experience through an Optional Practical Training (O.P.T.), or pursue other academic or professional endeavors. Whatever the path chosen, our highly qualified faculty advisors and staff are always eager to help our graduates make the best choices for their future.
