LL.M. Degree Specializations


Specializations offer LL.M. students the opportunity to work with expert faculty and gain deep expertise in one of several fields of study.

LL.M. students have the option of pursuing a specialized LL.M. degree by completing a curriculum geared towards a specific area of law. Specializations are available in the following fields:

Business (Four separate tracks within this specialization)

Environmental Law

Human Rights

International and Comparative Law

Law and Philosophy

Media, Entertainment, and Technology Law and Policy

Critical Race Studies*

Law and Sexuality*

Public Interest Law*

 

With the approval of the Assistant Dean for Graduate Studies and International Student Programs, students may also develop their own specializations in fields of their choice. Students may not create individualized specializations that are substantially similar to existing specializations.

*Specializations in Critical Race Studies, Law and Sexuality and Public Interest Law require admission to those individual programs in addition to admission to UCLA Law.
