LL.M. in London

2012 London Scenic 1

This LL.M. program allows students to obtain a degree from a U.S. law school while studying in England. The program has a limited number of courses 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.

Established in 1986, it is the only overseas graduate-degree program offered by an American law school.

“Apart from the obvious — London is without a doubt one of the most exciting cities I have ever lived in — Notre Dame's LL.M. program in London gives me the great opportunity to learn both the American and the English legal systems." – Nina Oldehaver '19 LL.M.
