LL.M. in London
This LL.M. program allows students from EU countries to obtain a degree from a U.S. law school while studying in England. Focusing on international and comparative law, this program is designed for students from common law countries who seek advanced training, and for graduates of law schools in civil law countries who seek training in common law disciplines or who wish to pursue studies comparing their legal systems with those of the United States and Great Britain. The LL.M. in International and Comparative Law is offered exclusively at the London Law Center.
Established in 1986, it is the only overseas graduate-degree program offered by an American law school.
“No longer is international law of interest only to multinational corporations that typically have a need for international expertise. Any practitioner now may need to be conscious of how easily a problem in domestic relations, intellectual property, or even crime can involve an international dimension. A failure to be conscious of this element may in the future prove to be not just undesirable, but reflect a flaw in a legal professional’s training.”
- Geoffrey Bennett, Director of the Notre Dame London Law Centre
