Master of Laws College of Law at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
The Master of Laws (LLM) is an intermediate professional degree designed for foreign educated lawyers or students holding an undergraduate degree in law or another field. The LLM program at the University of Illinois is full-time for two or three semesters or may be split into two one-semester years for employer-sponsored students.
The Illinois LLM program is designed to prepare students with or without any prior legal training to excel in their professional careers. Foreign-educated students in the LLM program are introduced to the U.S. legal system and provided the opportunity to specialize in their own area of academic or professional interest. U.S.-trained lawyers can also enhance their legal expertise to meet their professional and career goals in the LLM program.
