Track I: The LL.M. in U.S. Law for Foreign Lawyers is designed exclusively for graduates from non-U.S. law schools seeking to meet bar exam requirements of select U.S. jurisdictions. The rigorous curriculum provides a thorough training in U.S. law and teaches legal skills critical to advising clients in the U.S. and globally.
Track II: The LLM in International Law with Focus Option allows students to study private and public international law and choose their own focus in the other areas of the Loyola’s expertise – arbitration, negotiation, and mediation; business and corporate; child and family; competition; health; intellectual property; and tax law. Individualized focus possible.
