Master of Laws Requirements 2024-25

General Course Requirements

No specific courses are required for students enrolled in the Master of Laws LLM program. However, at least 8 credits of the required 24 credits in fall and spring 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 Master of Laws LLM and Graduate 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.
