An LLM program focuses on equipping participants with a deeper understanding of a specialized area of the law. Master of Laws programs can take anywhere from one to three years to complete.

What is an LLM in Jurisprudence? “Jurisprudence” refers to the philosophy of law, and individuals who choose to pursue an LLM in the area generally want to obtain a broader understanding of the law in and of itself. However, within this program, individuals may still choose to narrow their studies and take courses in areas like legal research, legal practice, conflict resolution, comparative law, international law or the law as it relates to the healthcare industry.

Individuals who graduate with their Master of Laws in Jurisprudence tend to be knowledgeable and well-rounded individuals. Many are equipped with conflict resolution skills, critical-thinking capabilities and a thirst for justice. Each of these traits may serve them well in practice and in life.

The cost of an LLM varies and depends on a number of factors. Before applying to a program, a potential student should do his or her research and talk to an advisor.

Many organizations and individuals can benefit from the skills of a graduate of the jurisprudence program. Because of this, participants of the program may go on to become corporate attorneys, civil rights lawyers, contract attorneys, regulations and ethics lawyers or international business lawyers. Individuals may choose to start their own firms as well and focus on copyright infringement, bankruptcy, tax law or any other area of law of their choosing.

Many schools offer an LLM in Jurisprudence, but where a student ends up ultimately comes down to his or her location, budget and schedule. Online courses offer the most flexibility and are ideal for individuals with full-time jobs and families to care for.
