Career-Oriented Curriculum

The Moritz College of Law provides a career-oriented curriculum to its students. With combined offerings of doctrinal courses in major legal practice areas (such as corporate law, litigation, dispute resolution, labor and employment law, and intellectual property) and experiential learning courses (such as the Mediation Clinic, the Legislation Clinic, and the Public Interest Externship program, moot court competitions,) Moritz equips LLM candidates with essential lawyering skills and real-life work experience that meet the demand of the global legal market.

A flexible degree, LLM students at Moritz may design their own curriculum that best suits their career goals, either by selecting any courses from over 100 courses in all major areas of U.S., transnational and international law, or focusing on one of the six academic concentrations that focus on major legal practice areas in the global market.
