LLM in American Law
The University of Tulsa College of Law offers an advanced LLM in American Law for Foreign Lawyers through a program that may be completed in as little as one academic year. The degree program provides foreign law graduates training in United States law through a campus-based program.
The LLM in American Law for Foreign Graduates program consists of a full course of study over two semesters. LLM degree candidates enroll in one semester course designed to introduce US law and one semester course on US legal writing, analysis and methodology. Students will be expected to complete an additional six to eight courses and will be closely counseled in their course selection. Students are invited to choose from any of the many courses offered by TU College of Law and the other graduate departments of The University of Tulsa.
The program offers foreign law graduates the opportunity to develop an understanding of American law as well as an opportunity to specialize in a specific area of law. Students of the program enjoy greater employment flexibility in their own countries, as well as the possibility to practice law in states that allow foreign graduates to sit for the bar exam.
The LLM degree requires a minimum 24 credits with a minimum cumulative grade point average of 2.0 on a 4-point scale. International LLM students are required to take three courses. Read more about sustainable energy and resources law course offerings.
