LL.M. in Transnational Legal Practice (TLP)

Educate global attorneys within New York City. TLP students benefit from St. John’s location in New York City. Our TLP students are able to attend events focused on transnational practice at the New York City Bar Association, attend panels at major conferences like International Law Weekend, and visit the United Nations.
