National Law Studies

LLM or Master of Laws provides an introduction to new areas of interest to them as well as the opportunity to further specialize in their current areas of practice and is usually restricted to those who achieved honor status in their previous legal studies.

If legal professionals, or students, are interested in the processes and practices of national law, then national law studies will likely be beneficial. Based on the domestic laws of a particular nation (state), national law studies generally focus on common and case law.

Education in the United States is mainly provided by the public sector, with control and funding coming from three levels: state, local, and federal, in that order. The common requirements to study at a higher education level in United States will include your admissions essay (also known as the statement of purpose or personal statement), transcript of records, recommendation/reference letters, language tests
