We firmly believe that an LL.M. program like ours that focuses on foreign law graduates, should provide opportunities to experience the cultural and historical context of a society, because that context impacts on the legal context in so many ways. For this reason, we strive to provide a comfortable, affordable, and fun environment in which to earn an LL.M. in U.S. Legal Studies. We're large enough to provide the best in facilities and academics, but small enough to focus on YOU. It is the ideal environment to develop skills as an expert in U.S. law.
