For those with graduate law degrees who are looking to specialize in a certain area, it can be helpful to gain expertise by getting a Master of Laws, or LLM. Typically completed in a single year, this type of postgraduate law degree can greatly enhance your knowledge and experience in the specific field of your choice.

What is an LLM in Policy? When someone with a law degree wants to focus more exclusively on policy laws, the LLM in Policy can be earned in several different areas. Public interest law and policy, environmental law and policy, and international competition law and policy are just a few of the options to choose from. Because policies play such a large role in putting the laws to the best use possible and making sure they are helping people and not hindering them, it can be very rewarding to play a part in creating, changing or abolishing policies.

Earning an LLM in Policy can make you a more desirable lawyer, because every business and governing body around the world will need help with their policies at some point. It can also increase your earning potential and may even help to pave your way into other fields, such as politics.

Each school that offers an LLM in Policy will have different tuition prices based on various factors, such as the size of the school and how prestigious it is. There will also be different costs for schools based on which country they are located in.

There are a wide variety of career options for someone with an LLM in Policy. You can practice law, become a lobbyist, work with government and non-profit organizations, or work in a think tank to research and analyze current issues in policy. There are virtually countless ways to practice policy law, since every industry has jobs related to policies.

There are many wonderful schools worldwide that offer an LLM in Policy. You may also be able to take some of the classes online. Search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.
