Master of Laws (LLM)

The University of Arizona offers both the Master of Legal Studies (MLS) and Master of Laws (LLM). The LLM is designed for students who already possess a foreign law degree and wish to advance their understanding of the U.S. legal system. The MLS is for individuals without a first law degree who would like to develop an understanding of U.S. laws and regulations. A student with the equivalent of a bachelor's degree in any discipline or field may apply for the MLS.

The Master of Laws (LLM) program provides those who have already earned a JD in the U.S. or a first law degree (BA in Law, LLB or JD equivalent) from a country outside the U.S. with advanced legal training through either a full-time or part-time curriculum.

We offer three pathways for you to consider for your LLM:

  • General
  • Indigenous Peoples Law and Policy
  • International Trade and Business Law

The General LLM focuses on the Introduction to U.S. Law. This curriculum has been specially designed to prepare students who wish to take the bar in the state of Washington (which often accepts online LLM degrees for bar eligibility). Advance your knowledge with in-depth study and interaction with experts in the field of law, including experienced academics and policymakers. The College of Law's General LLM provides an opportunity to gain a level of proficiency within a specific field of law. Create your own concentration by selecting courses from any number of our available areas of study.

The Indigenous Peoples Law and Policy LLM gives students professional training to address the complex issues facing Indigenous peoples today, allowing them to develop a proficiency in fields like Indigenous peoples’ human rights advocacy, environmental law, and Indigenous community and economic development.

The International Trade and Business Law LLM will hone your knowledge in commercial transactions, business organizations, and international trade.
