Program Requirements

The Master of Laws (LL.M.) for foreign students at Syracuse University College of Law is a 24-credit hour graduate program designed to offer students with a foreign (non-U.S.) law degree or its equivalent, advanced study in American law.

This program is exclusively available to graduates in law from foreign academic institutions or those who are otherwise licensed to practice law in their home jurisdictions. We seek people from diverse legal backgrounds, including corporate, government, private practice, judicial and academic.

In this one-year residential program, each student will take two basic foundational courses together. One to introduce the students to basics of the American Legal system and a second in Legal Writing with a third required research seminar of their choice. The remainder of the program allows the student to tailor their own experience in the LL.M. from among the superb and diverse courses offered at the College.

Student Learning Outcomes

1. Develop knowledge of U.S. constitutional, statutory, regulatory, and common law
2. Analyze and apply principles of law and legal reasoning
3. Research, speak, and write proficiently about the law
