Advanced Legal Studies
Master students who want to pursue an additional degree, such as a JD, PhD, JSD or SJD, are welcome to speak with LLM Program staff to learn more about options.
Student Visa & Practical Training
LLM students on a US student visa should consult early in the year with the International Student Services office about applying for OPT (Optional Practical Training).
Students stay connected to their TU Law colleagues through the TU Global LLM Alumni Network, including via social media such as LinkedIn and Facebook.
The LLM in American Law is a specialist degree, designed to prepare lawyers to practice law in the international arena. This program is not intended to serve as a bar preparation course. See the National Conference of Bar Examiners website for an up-to-date, state-by-state summary of bar exam requirements. For example, many students who received LLM degrees in other states have successfully taken the New York bar exam.
Eligibility in some states require completion of specific courses during the student’s LLM studies. Therefore, students planning to take a US bar exam upon completion of the LLM program should research a state’s bar eligibility requirements before beginning any program. LLM students are encouraged to seek out bar preparation programs that are targeted to LLM students and graduates.
The Master of Jurisprudence Programs do not serve as a bar preparation course.
