Penn Carey Law’s LLM program is over a century old and recognized among the best, attracting top students worldwide. The program is a one-year, full-time course of study in advanced legal topics designed primarily for lawyers trained outside the United States. Students select courses from an extensive curriculum of specialized courses and seminars. Penn Carey Law grants a generalized LLM that allows each student to design their own curriculum, enabling them to focus on subjects that best suit their needs. LLM students take courses alongside our upper-level JD students and are with us for ten months, including the five-week Pre-Term Program.
Penn Carey Law LLM students are also eligible to enroll in the Wharton Business and Law Certificate, a custom-designed program for our students taught by Wharton faculty and industry experts selected for their teaching skills, subject expertise, and ability to offer applied concepts and examples to participants. All LLM students may participate in this program, which runs concurrently with the LLM program.
