Justice, Democracy and Legal Rights Concentration

This concentration offers a directed program of study for LL.M. students in an increasingly important field of global legal practice. It provides (1) specialized training in the concentration field of law, (2) guidance to students in developing a program of study with the courses deemed most useful and relevant to the concentration, (3) a concentration designation on their transcripts that will better allow them to market their expertise, thus gaining a competitive advantage in the legal employment market.

In some instances, a dual concentration (e.g., in Commercial Law and Trade as well as Corporate and Finance Law) is available to eligible students. Subject to course availability and demand, eligible students must apply to pursue the dual concentration and may stay in residence an additional semester so that the 14-credit requirement of the second concentration can be independently met. In the case of the dual concentration, credits used to satisfy one concentration cannot be used to satisfy the requirements for a second concentration. Students interested in remaining in residence for a third semester to complete their program of study must apply by the listed deadline at the start of the second semester of the LL.M. degree.
