Traditional LLM

General Course Requirements

No specific courses are required for students enrolled in the traditional LLM program. However, at least 8 credits of the required 24 credits must be taken in courses that are graded on the basis of examinations. Please note that students in this program may not register for more than 8 credits in Taxation courses without approval from both the Traditional LLM and Tax Directors.

There is no formal writing requirement for this program, but students are strongly encouraged to take at least one seminar that allows them to write a substantial research paper. Furthermore, like students in other programs, students in this program have the opportunity to expand the typical research assignment into a thesis under the supervision of a faculty member.

* Corporations (LW.10644) in fall is open only to LLM students in the Corporation Law specialization. Students in other specializations may register for the other four credit Corporations course (LW.10344).
