LL.M. Specialization in International and Comparative Law

To be awarded the specialization in International and Comparative Law, students must maintain a B- (2.7) grade average in courses taken for the specialization. Detailed course descriptions are linked in the listings below. Prospective students should bear in mind that, due to curriculum scheduling and faculty availability, not every class listed is taught each year. This is most often true in the case of seminar courses. A sufficient number of courses will be available to enable those students who choose to specialize to satisfy the specialization requirements.


The below requirements notwithstanding, a graduate of a non-U.S. law school may instead satisfy the requirements of this specialization by successfully completing Law 278 (Comparative Law), three U.S. law courses, and a substantial paper that considers U.S. law in comparative context.
