The General Studies LL.M. Program provides U.S. lawyers and U.S. law graduates the flexibility to study a wide range of legal subjects or focus on specific legal areas. Degree candidates design their own course of study based on their needs and objectives.

Scholarly Writing for LL.M. Students is a two-credit course required for General Studies LL.M. degree candidates. (This course is waived if Scholarly Writing was successfully completed as a J.D. student.)
The remaining 22 elective credits are comprised of J.D. and LL.M. courses. Students may opt to participate in an externship earning as many as four credits.
