There are many reasons to study in the United States to obtain an LLM degree. Some students want to develop specialized knowledge of a certain area of law, others want to improve their English and sit for a US Bar Exam, and some lawyers are looking for international legal training to make them more competitive in the increasingly globalized legal market. Whatever your goals may be, obtaining a U.S. LLM degree can help you reach them.
The Ohio State University Moritz College of Law Master of Laws (LLM) Program is designed for foreign lawyers who wish to advance their legal education in a stimulating academic environment. The college offers the dual advantages of a highly-regarded law curriculum at a major U.S. university and an LLM program of limited size that allows for individualized attention and support.
Two of the program’s primary goals are to immerse foreign lawyers in a year of U.S. legal education and to foster interaction between American JD students and the LLM students. In large part this is accomplished by integrating the LLM students into the JD curriculum, ensuring that both groups will benefit from the interaction and graduate from their respective programs well prepared to participate in an increasingly globalized world. Moritz also offers a rich selection of student activities outside the classroom where LLM students may participate in the life of the college.
