Program Overview

Earn a J.D. degree plus a Master of Laws (LL.M.) in less time!

The joint degree program allows select Cooley students to take up to six credits of LL.M. coursework before they complete their juris doctor degree. The credits will count toward both degrees, permitting these students to save significant time and money while obtaining the knowledge, skills, and credentials for a successful law practice.

Once the J.D. degree is awarded, students can either obtain their LL.M. in two semesters or take up to three years to complete the degree with classes convenient to their work schedule.
